Looks like it used to be Happy Coach Line! http://etspe.ca/coach/coachviewpic.php?pic=other/happyline131.jpg

Someone took the time to paint the front stripes blue too.

Yup, which was used by Jumbo Holidays quite a bit. Happy Coach Lines has a newer Prevost now all blue paint as shown in my gallery with frameless windows. 

As well, the bus was owned by Autocar Thetford as unit #1003 before going to Happy Coach Lines.

interesting.  Either the joy express did an extensive rebuilt or Prevost continues to make h3-41

Yeah I found it interesting as well, I'd never seen an H3-41 in the new style.

I know some companies refitted the older buses with the new front end.  It is easy to tell by looking at the wheel well panel

Prevost still offers the H3-41 as of the current brochure. American Stages and Capitol Tours to name a couple companies off the top of my head that ordered new H3-41's.

Joy Express 222, Prevost H3-41

That's the bus used by Joy Holidays based out of San Francisco, CA for their "deluxe tours". I remember seeing on their website pictures of the interior of that coach and it was very nice, with 2+1 individual leather seating.

I had a look on their website but didn't see interior pictures of that coach. Do you a link?

It is real. Saw it a couple of days ago sans decals. I wonder if it's an ex-demo.

That I cannot be too certain, but one thing I'll add is that she has siblings as well.

 

This one for the most part is running the winter season going forward instead of the trolleys. Since its purchase in November, it was released in December without decals for the better part of the month as soon as it was painted from blue to red. Decals were only applied sometime over the last few days or so.

There is a good amount of the first batch of Megabus ones for sale in the USA. Some have made it to site-seeing operators including some that are owned by Stagecoach has taken some and removed the roof and replaced the seats.
