2011 Edmonton and Area Spottings

Recommended Posts

Spotted the 'Halloween Express' last night. A route 3 with the front vestibule decked out in strings of scary plastic pumpkins and witches. It was a real 'treat' to see a driver caring enough to decorate the bus, even a tiny bit, for her passengers. ;)

Looks like everything is sadly going to WW to parts unknown.

Apparently traction poles being removed along 107 Avenue west of 142 Street. Reg lamp standards are going in one per every three traction poles according to my source.

As much as I like trolleybuses, (really I do, they'd be better on a lot of toronto's routes) life must go on.

Indeed!

There are in fact far better reasons why the majority of us have vacated this section (and this board for that matter!) :(

Spotted unit 4871 today going SB on 124 Street. Nothing unusual except that the Electronic Display Sign was proudly displaying [LEST WE FORGET] !!!

My first thought was that the driver had entered the wrong code. Then I thought about it some more ... HMMMMMM....Lest We Forget 'the true meaning of Christmas'.

So perhaps without even realizing it, this driver had it right all along. Anyhow, I like it and it makes sense to me. So let's forget all the politically correct nonsense and the over commercialized B.S. and lets remember why we are really celebrating....Lest We Forget.

The signage for the 100 needs some serious help.

It reads something like:

100 Lewis Farms

100 Via WEM &

SUPER EXPRESS

100 Super Express
