I'm not too fond of those headlights, but Brewster does have a very impressive and well-kept fleet. I especially like their newer J4500s and H3-45s.

Brewster 5 and 7 (MC-9s) are no longer with Brewster. 5 became an organ donor, 7 might be with MPM Canada now. They both are still in the "Snow Shuttle" livery.

As has been posted, Brewster now operates Setras which are ex-Grayline of Victoria. Here are two shots of # 1140, taken on May 10th at the Columbia Icefields.

1140 originally ran for Gray Line of Vancouver, if I remember correctly. That being said, I'm pretty sure that those ex-GL Van Setras all ended up running for Gray Line of Banff after the Vancouver division folded in the fall of 2007. At least, I remember seeing a bunch of them parked at the Banff yard in December of 2008.

Brewster 194 an MCI 102A3 now belongs to Oyen & District Minor Hockey. Oyen is a small town located in central eastern Alberta. I spotted the bus today in Calgary.

Here's a photo

Nice catch! That coach sure is looking rough now. I am sure it didn't look that rough at all during her days with Brewster. I love how Brewster keeps their coaches looking so sharp all the time!

Brewster 232 after backing into the washbay door at the Greyhound Edmonton Garage... Picture was taken just before the guy from the door place got the door up enough to get him out after about 2 hours....

Can't tell from the picture, but the part of the door on the left of the picture came off the tracks and the door wouldn't go up or down and apparently Prevosts are too tall to fit through the washrack..

Yeah I only was able to shoot a few - they are on the Wiki.

But they look nice to match the Rocky Mountaineer train!

Speaking of Rocky Mountaineer, any Gray Line West spottings?? Are they even still in business as I haven't heard much about them..

Yes actually I shot at least a couple of Gray Line West coaches out there. Will post them soon hopefully.

There's also the Gray Line of Seattle ones running around though.

Some observations while at the Columbia Icefields just over a week ago. The Snow Coach shuttles were operating with the following coaches - 2, 201, 229, 230, 231, 638, 639, and 640. 202, 207, and 3 were all parked at the south end of the bus parking lot probably as spares to the ones running that day. They have also changed the livery on two of the 102-C3's and all 3 of the 102-A3's. A few images shown below.

Spotted Brewster #239 at the Calgary yard yesterday. Odd thing is that it's had all legals, logo, fleet numbers and lettering removed. All that's left is just the base livery.

The imprint from the decal clearly reads 239 from up close. However it still did have it's BC registration plate and an Alberta rear license plate.
