Is too bad ttc did not try its BBC HR150G in 1982 the same year ets was having theirs delivered. if for the e700 replacements it would be nice to have a HR150G in the ttc colours or the CLRV colours.

The BBC's were fantastic buses. One of a kind. No where else in the world had trolleys with GM bodies. Edmonton is not the same any more.

Wow, looking for something else I encountered a thread dedicated to me being a Grandma... Since I last posted in here, I now have a granddaughter, Aria Grace' born on April 22, 2016. So now there is Logan (he will be 5 y/o in November), Carter (he will be 3 y/o in September) and Aria who is 2 1/2 months at present.  So yeah, I think Son and his wife are going to stop at three. Such wonderful grandchildren. I am so happy and so proud of them.

A former neighbor that relocated to Ireland was back in town for a brief visit and I managed to get her and my family together for a lovely lunch. Logan will be 6 in November (wearing the black Monsters Inc shirt), Carter is 4, (wearing the grey shirt), and Aria is almost 1 1/2 yrs. old. The grand kiddos are growing so fast. I can't believe it was Christmas since I last saw them.

I've attached a few pics since Murphy's Law of Photography dictates that someone will either have their eyes closed or not be paying attention.

New Jersey Public Service had at least one old-look with dual poles. It was a "dual-service" vehicle; wires in town, diesel on the suburbs.  Here is a link:

I should have been specific, I meant GM New Look.  However this Old Look is simply outstanding with poles. IMO, poles just add a certain je ne sais quoi to the general esthetics of the bus.. !!!

Are you sure it is actually a dual mode and not simply a bus modified with 'hardware' to work as an ice scraper trolley?

A comment from a friend of mine that found some info on this unit: This picture is of a prototype diesel electric vehicle. It was the only GM vehicle ever built like this, and it was converted to a standard diesel bus and served out the rest of its days as such.

Logan (my 6 y/o grandson) drew a couple of pictures, one for me and one for my mom. So I guess one officially becomes a grandma as soon as the fridge becomes a poster board for such precious creations.  Here is MY mother enjoying the picture Logan drew for her, and my fridge sporting the first of what will soon be many more precious creations,

Proud Grandma moment. Portrait of son, his wife, and Logan, Carter,  & Aria. Each year they have a portrait taken in the same location. Kinda neat.

I guess one is never too old to believe in Santa. Mom will be 100 next month..

 Got some Christmas photos from the Nursing Home.

- One of the residents has a daughter that is a bus driver. Every year she organizes a private Christmas Lights charter. Here is mom sitting on the bus waiting to go view the lights.

- I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. One of the male residents (who still has a good brain) was decked out as Santa. I spoke with him today and told him it was a brilliant endeavor to get smooches from all the ladies.

Also, Christmas photo of my grandchildren.

Not really a 'Grandma' moment. When I went to visit mom today, one of the two nursing home 'Therapy' Cats was making herself right at home in mom's room.  Of course mom says she never sees 'the cat' (she thinks there is only one cat - and she calls it 'Pebbles' the name of her long ago deceased cat) and is convinced that someone has stolen her and locked her up.  Mom was in the dining room at the time, so I took a couple pics to prove to her the cat is still alive and well. She was asleep on moms pillow, but woke up at the sound of the camera (my phone makes the same sound as a camera). This is 'Twinkle-Toes, the older of the two cats, and a polydactyl.

Your cat is about the size of Maddie, the other Therapy cat in the nursing home. This is her about a year and a half ago when she was new to the home. I don't have a recent photo. The cats get a lot of smuggled food from the residents, even though there are signs everywhere not to feed the cats. Most of the residents don't read the signs, because they can't remember what they've read anyway.

What a cutie!  Looks just like the cat my parents had when I was just a little baby!

Son and his wife spending their 12th wedding anniversary in Canmore (Kananaskis area of Alberta) with their children.

Time sure flies. Hard to believe he got married June 13, 2008, 12 years ago at Fort Edmonton Park. Everyone was treated to a ride around Fort Edmonton Park on Streetcar #80. James Paull was the motorman.
