Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

Recommended Posts

I am sure they're going to trash it.. LOL!

CPS as in Calgary Police? I could've sworn back in 2010, it was labelled as a "department".

Though it's not a "bus", #2311 is effectively our first SD160 CTrain car to be retired, after the recent freak accident near Tuscany station. 

Here #2311 is photographed at Chinook station on September 27, 2013 (pardon the weird angle, as this was one of the very first photos I ever took with my then-new DSLR camera):

And exactly a year later, at OBMF on September 27, 2014:

This photo was taken at the Victoria Park Garage in August of 1995.  Every single bus in that image has since been retired from the CT fleet.

What a beautiful bus. I wonder if there going to trash it?

I should add to this thread the fact that #5094 has since been sold off and is now Sunshine Village #35.

Here is a shot of #7517 in June of 1996 on 9th Ave. just passing Centre Street.  Very different background on that N.W. corner now.

Nice X Files ad! Really helps the 90's-ness show!

Anyone want a good photo op? Navajo has 4 or 5 of MCIs parked on the NE corner of the lot...clearly visable from Deerfoot

I will let you do that one and park on the side of Deerfoot Trail to walk over and get photos of those.....

My first trip to Calgary as a bus enthusiast in August 1990 for Throwback Thursday - 1982 GM T6H5307N #1118 leaving the Spring Gardens Transit Garage.  This bus lasted until sometime in 2007 or 2008 and did receive refurbishing in the late 1990's, but never did receive the 3 stripe livery.

And yes, I am a day late!  I wanted to do this yesterday and forgot!
