Can anyone identify this 1930's era transit bus?

...together with a huge collection of old trucks.

This obviously was a transit bus, as can be seen from the presence of a roller sign. Also I recall it having a center exit door (not visible on this view).

Does anyone have any idea of its history? What make and year? What city transit system was it part of?

This is a very interesting property for old vehicle, especially truck afficionados, as it contains nearly a hundred large and medium trucks, of the kind that are very seldom preserved. It is located on the north side of Yellowhead Highway 16 near Marshall, almost across from the large modern grain elevator facility.

Winnipeg colors - cream and orange? Might this have been one of the ten late-thirties Macks that Winnipeg sold to Moose Jaw in the fifties, and were their #1 to #10?

That looks like it's moved since I saw it last. If you think it's ex Winnipeg, why not post over there? I can only imagine some MTHA guys would know about it.

I thought this was close but now that I see both buses side-by-side I realize they are not a match...
