Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

Recommended Posts

Throwback Thursday!

I am honored to have gotten the chance to photograph and ride this elusive bus several times prior to its withdrawal from the Calgary Transit fleet in November of 2013. Here #7001 is photographed on 5th Avenue in September of that year.

#2101 (now ENMAX car) making an uncommon appearance on the West LRT in April of 2014.

Nice pic but it's not really Enmax's car. It's used to check the catenary and the rails. It still belongs to Calgary Transit.

I'll find out more info about it though to find out who runs it Enmax or track and way or a completely different bunch of people. 😉

Throwback Thursday! Since I forgot last week's, this time we have two!

One of my first photos I ever took with my then-new Canon DSLR, here we have #1014 arriving at Chinook station as a Route 23 in September of 2013:

And #1046 looking great (albeit rusty) in downtown in October of 2013:

#5113 photographed laying over at Mount Royal University on the Route 181 in September of 2013. Note the inoperative rear route indicator and operator controlled exit door, both characteristic of this series.

Isn't 1046 still on property as a historic bus? If so, this photo shouldn't count as it's still in the fleet. Or do non-regular vehicles still count?

This is the last photo I ever took of an MCI Classic in service in this city. #5067 on the Route 14 near my house on October 8, 2014, one week before the last reported day of service for these buses.
