Wait till you see 86308 or 86352 in the US; you won't complain about anything in Canada again! ^_^

Oh man the american X3's that come up from Seattle are just beat old dogs. Body panels loose and endless dings and scratches. I find the BOLT units are in better condition.

Have they figured out what to do with #1134 yet?

Does anyone have interior photos of the refurbished 1100-series GLC 102DL3? What about the old 900- and 1000-series 102DL3s with the grey interior?

Saw a hound that looked exactly like this leaving Ottawa Terminal today couldn’t get the # though ..... Either Greyhound has another coach that looks identical to this or it could quite possibly be this bus that I saw

There might be another bus like it possibly. 1265 pictured I think usually runs around Alberta for the most part.

#1265 was running out of Vancouver yesterday. It must have been #1331, which was last spotted by Paul Bateson like this:

 

DI504 - Greyhound Canada 1331 - Toronto, Edward Street - 15 Oct 2016

So it quite possibly could have been painted in the same colours as 1265 , since that photo is from 2016

No.  1331 was previously wrapped for Gatineau Olympics QMJHL team.  Wrap was removed in 2016.  417 Bus Line is the team’s carrier now.

1265 is alive and well out west (It was wrecked a few years ago and was brought back into service...its painted all white, quite different from the other 4505's.

I'm glad to see that #1137 is finally back on the road! One time I spent 10 hours drawing a sketch of it.

What's your favorite old DL3 to work on?

Don't really have a favorite DL3 in particular. They're all the same in my eyes apart from their transmissions. I'm a Prevost guy myself. I like working on the BoltBus stuff and American X3's that come up because it's a chance to work on more newer buses and keeping up with working on the newer technology on them. But the old DL3's are a good challenge to getting creative with repairs and working with older tech and learning from them. It's a good mix of both.
