ARGH!! I can't seem to add one more photo I wanted to show! I don't understand what is going on!

There seems to be a limit on file attachments sizes. 500k, I think.

Thanks SHerman. These shots were all taken in Kananaskis Country in Alberta. About an hour West of Calgary.

I'm sorry, is it the scenery or the bus that you're saying is beautiful? I would think it would be the former. My opinion of beauty is this:

Redone MC-9 is right. Still waiting to see their LeMirage...

Saw a Golden Arrow J4500 the other day, with COLLETTE in big letters decalled on the side (not just a plackard). Do you know which unit this is?

Not too sure if I (being the West Coast-er :) ) should post a photo of a coach from the east coast.............A Toronto Airport Express Prevost H3-41 wrapped up for Samsung! :D

One of my favourite photos from the Toronto visit back in August...........too bad I didn't have a chance to grab a photo of the Airpport Express H3-41 that was wrapped up for Expedia.ca! ;)

Could be an MC-9 special... or even an MC-12...

"Datyon" was on the destination sign.

Not to sure of all the spotting differences between the MC-9/MC-9S/MC-12.

For the MC-9 and MC-9S, I don't know. Usually it's the square headlights giving away the MC-9S, but Peter said that square headlights were an option on the MC-9 starting in (insert year here).

And speaking of Golden Arrow, 257 is out of service, as it got hit by a semi making a lane change, at around 30-40km/h. From the Sun:

They don't seem to be having the best of luck with regards to accidents within this past year. Though of course this one is not their fault. Glad everyone is okay, hopefully just cosmetics damage for the most part. Would expect to see 257 back, after what happened to 262 earlier this year and it still came back.

I saw this parked in the 'hood. It's the best I could get without going onto private property.

Ah yes, the good old MC-7, which in many ways cast the die for MCI's later coaches: the dual rear axles and the lower center of gravity than their GM competition. I always loved riding in those. Note the shadow of the Greyhound name on the front, barely visible. Former Greyhound Lines of Canada coaches are good buys; in the US, look for "Never Been A 'Hound"!
