National Motor Coach

Recommended Posts

It seems that #122 has been very recently refurbished and repainted.

I seem to recall that one was done by Spring 2007.

Spotted in the National Motor Coach yard in S.E. Calgary were Ex-BT&T J4500 #'s 108, 208 still in full BT&T Livery. They probably just picked them up not too long ago. Will have to see what they get numbered to.

Also, a Burned hulk of a Prevost H3-45 numbered 208 with some sort of livery on it. I believe this coach may have been picked up for parts as it seems the fire damage seems contained to the front half of the coach.

What did BT&T get as replacements?? Or have they gone under?

Just googled Banff Transportation and Tours, their website redirects to another version of Pinnacle Tours.

Hmm... Now that I think about it more, I seem to recall that the two companies basically merged? Bah! I am just not sure what happened and hope someone else can shed some light on this.

This past Thursday, I forgot to mention on here that I spotted National Motor Coach #200 which is one of the Ex-Banff Transportation & Tours 2008 MCI J4500's.

Has anyone seen any of the two National Motor Coach Van Hool C2045's? I caught this shot of #203 over a year ago and I have not seen this one or any other VH for National since I got that photo of #203. I get the feeling National got rid of them already.

I have been trying to track down older and now retired coaches from the National fleet and today I was able to get the fleet number off of a previously unidentified MC-7 that has been parked in their yard for some time and it is #105. It has been added to the WIKI and here's an image: http://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=I...r_Coach_105.jpg

176 (ex-Accent), they touched up the livery on this coach, it use to have some stripes on the side.

177 (ex-Accent), I think this is their best looking Prevost. Columbia Icefield.
