I was sent a newspaper clipping this morning about a coach on the Mount Poley mine contract going off the road and ending up on its side. Mount Poley mine is a CBL contract isn't it?

This is the clipping that canuck600 is referring toMt. Polley Roll over.jpg

Found Ex CBL MCI 102-A3 #720 for sale on Craigslist out in Chilliwack. Looks to be sold via Mountain View Harley Davidson.

I drove by it on the highway a few times in the last couple of weeks. The seven speed tranny struck me as odd. She had a five speed the one time I drove her. But retrofits do happen.

5208-5211 2015 Prevost H345s have arrived/are arriving.

Black, older style rear bumper is the only quick spoting feature on this year's order. The bumpers are far sturdier than the newer molded bumpers. Green stripes are decal material, not paint.

Spotted #940 wrapped for the FIFA's Women World Cup Canada 2015. Could only get a poor shot of the back as I was driving:

Found an Ex CBL #54(?) on craigslist: http://kelowna.craigslist.ca/rvs/5060614509.html According to the ad, it's a 1976 Marathon XL, and on the wiki #54 was the only 1976 Prevost listed rebuilt as a Marathon. Just assuming from the little info I could gather. Looks in nice condition none the less!

Oh wow! That coach is still around! And yes, it is rebuilt, but it was originally built as the Champion. You can tell by the side windows. I see they changed the back tail light assembly at some point. Here are my images of #54 on my website: http://www.busdrawings.com/coach/cbl/champion/index.htm

I had the pleasure to ride aboard unit #950 on a 2 day Leavenworth tour operated by Grand Holidays with a very courteous and professional driver by the name of Richard from Charter Bus Lines of British Columbia. Below are some pictures of the bus:

Just speculation, but maybe they were leases from the beginning, and the lease is up now?

Ahh... that would make sense

It looks like CBLBC is selling 4 of their 2016 Prevost H3-45s:

Not sure if that is all of their 2016 Prevost H3-45s, but does anyone know why they are selling buses that new?

Lots of stuff happening. Just wait and see ;)
