As some of you might know, the rarest bus in the MTHA fleet is Grey Goose #20:

GGB20-mtha.thumb.jpg.da04c15d21668a4562a390a5d363d4f7.jpg

It's one of only four model T36-2L (Scenicruiser knock-off) coaches built in 1955/56 by Western Flyer Coach. The four units were:

  1. Thiessen Transportation #19 (Grey Goose #20) (now MTHA #20) [s/n 8-56]
  2. Grey Goose Lines #19 [s/n 15-55]
  3. Moore's Trans-Canada Lines #19 [s/n 16-55]
  4. Eagle Bus Lines #19 [s/n 9-56]

This was discovered in a Manitoba scrapyard just a few days ago:

It's clearly one of the three other WFC T36-2L's. It's been modified, especially at the rear. It's also in pretty bad shape. We don't know which of the other three it is.

It's a remarkable find.  We had general information about two of the other three, including reports that one of them had been spotted in an Edmonton junkyard some years ago. This unit might have been on the road, in it's modified form, in the last decade or two.

Wow, that's a nice find! I wonder, would it be worth trying to get a hold of it for some parts if nothing else?

So I noticed that 107 the D901 is parked behind FRG, does anyone know why that is 

Bus #107 is booked for a shoot (not sure if it's TV or a film).
