A Fun Foto of the newest refurb, Unit # 135. Here's a clever way of shooting the bus and keeping the driver 'out of the picture'.

Unit # 148 was repaired on the road from what I have been told. The driver who had it said it was 'driven' back to the garage. Apparently two service guys in a truck drove up to the bus, fixed it, and one of them drove it back. There was a trolley on the E9 on Thursday as well.

And that is the way is should be done, even changing shoes does not require a change over...

My dad and uncle were down visiting this weekend from the Greater Vancouver area. Today was my day to show them around the city. (On the bus of course!) One of the places my uncle wanted to visit was the Coliseum. Knowing me, I had to incorporate trolleys and LRT into the trip!

Here are a couple pics of us with unit #148 at the Coliseum today. (The driver took the pictures for us!) She said it was $5 to take a photo of her bus. She loves driving trolleys! We chatted all the way Downtown. Awesome driver. These pictures were taken between 15:31 and 15:33 today.

Picture #1,

Janice is on 3 week's vacation. But she should be back on Tuesday. Besides she has weekends and Stat Holidays off on this shift. Those pics are awesome. You could put a link to them in the thread about "Picture Yourself with a Transit Vehicle".

What happened to 197? I haven't heard anything about that one in a long time. It was one of the first 2 that went to Toronto in 1990 (along with 192). In 1989 I caught it going SB over the 95th Street crossing - where in 1978 Wally Young had caught Brill 197 crossing the tracks SB.

And apparently 109 in Dayton. 110 I hear is still kept for parts. Or maybe it's the other way around... well anyway one of the Dayton ones have been retired.

197 is probably hiding in storage. 192 returned to service in 2004 (I believe it also ran until 1998 after its return from Toronto). 197 was was also brought out to Westwood Garage in 2004, but it didn't return to service. It was taken back to the old Cromdale Garage in August 2004 and hasn't been seen since.

I believe 197 was one of the ones that returned home without it's BBC name plate after some individuals in Toronto decided they wanted to keep a piece of a BBC.

A few turned up on eBay a few years back and commanded very high prices!
