Random Photos - Calgary and Area

Recommended Posts

Two photos of the bus I drove on my route 3 today. First shot taken (before entering service) on 10th Ave. S.E. at about 3rd St. right where I snapped 4 CFD Rigs in this thread: http://www.cptdb.ca/...?showtopic=5976 . Second shot taken at the Fish Creek turn around loop.

This image of #826 was taken 14 years ago this month. She is seen parked westbound at the 78th Ave. Terminal in N.E. Calgary after working and afternoon trip on the route 85 Huntington Hill East Express. This route has long since been deleted. Anyone remember when route 85 was deleted?

If I recall from when the route number was reused for the opening of McKnight-Westwinds, someone had said the number had been unused for 4 or 5 years I believe.

Edit: a quick search on google found a note on http://www.kevinsbusrail.com/calgary_trans...mpics1975.html:

"826 has just finished an afternoon trip as a route 85 Huntington East Express seen here at 78th Ave. N. Terminal. This bus was retired later that year. Also this route was done away with in early 2003."

along with the picture you posted above.

HAH! I forgot I had submitted that image to Kevin's website years ago! I guess adding it to my website today isn't really a new addition after all! Oh well! Thanks for the info and memory refresh as well too!

A few random pics from today. Enjoy!

Nice photos! What are those black rectangular things beside the front destination sign on the driver's side? I notice them on many of the D40LFs.

They are the traffic priority signal transponders - basically allows the bus to change the traffic light (or speed up the light cycle) at select intersections. :blink:

You can see it mounted below the destination sign in the picture of 8074.

Speaking of the photo of 8074, what is the APC logo? I noticed it's on the side too under the fleet number.

Interesting. Did they need to have it so huge? I thought maybe the company who applied the livery got some advertising out of it. :blink:

Was out wandering around the NE and stumbled upon 8042 sitting by itself up in Saddlebrook (the driver appeared to be doing a walkaround and was on the other side)
