Own any bus

Recommended Posts

PCC Guy   

Can I have a streetcar? T6A5/III please.

If not, I'd like a TTC 1996 Orion V, preferably from the 9400-9449 range. Preferably 9400. Although given the state its frames must be in by now, it might be a bit of a fixer upper... :unsure:

EDIT: In retrospect, I wouldn't mind a Škoda 15 TrM either.

How about a slightly used Prevost, something about 6 to 12 months old. I could tease a few people if I had one .... do it up right and run some Greyhound overload trips with it. i know a core group of drivers that could do that for me. As for myself, charter runs on day trips and longer, on trips to historical locations and nice scenic locations with happy travelers who appreciate a nice, happy, driver who gives customer service that is appreciated.

I'm going to go old school, either a CanCar CD-52 or one Laval's 2000 series S8H-5304As from 1975.

I'd also add a Renault TN4, a Saviem SC10 UM and a Renault PR100 MI from Paris too. :)

Well, maybe the STM 1st gens were crap, but Charlotte CATS 1st gens run great, and they actually have enough seats for people, and CATS maintains the Nova LFS perfectly. CATS NOVA LFS are different than what you're used to.
