Done. May I also add the pics as well?

Please do! and i will get more if you like....

also. Dallas has no MCIs in service, In fact, I have never seen a Dallas EL3....

and there is no 1 or 03 in the currant fleet.... unless they were renumbered....

for the years built, it is the first 2 numbers of the fleet numbers

eg. 2425 is ex 9425, built in 1994

unsure of 2007 and 2008 though...

also, 2007 has only 52 seats and 2008 has 58 seats.

I remember seeing the MCIs at their yard in 2006. Perhaps they were lease buses.

Was it Dallas Coach that had a couple units stolen out of their yard?? I forget what company it was, but there was a posting at work "MOTOR COACH THIEF STRIKES AGAIN" from something like the Ontario Motor Coach Operators Association?? Think it was in Juneish??

But I remember the unit numbers were 9326 and 9724... Anybody know what happened to them??

I kinda figured out how to add text into the page. added model info for the freightliner bus. can someone add the photo please?

I've added it - thanks! :lol:

(Some tips for the future - we usually link text by putting square brackets around, eg. [[Glaval Bus]] and [[Glaval Bus Concorde|Concorde]] - meaning the link will go to the page "Glaval Bus Concorde" but will only display "Concorde" on the page, which is desirable under the Model column.)

Thanks for your contributions! :)

so... I had a look around the web today, and found something interesting..... There is mention of Dallas coach at some point having MCI E series coaches.... In their offices they have a painting of a toronto cityscape, with what appears to be a Dallas E series bus in it, and the bus is painted just like This....

which is a Autocars ADS coach.... (Dallas # 2425 is an Ex. Autocars ADS) Fleet number is also simillar to the one posted in the wiki..... If I can get more Info, I will....

Digging this thread way out from the archives...

It appears Dallas Coach was purchased by Toronto Bus Company. A number of Dallas coaches were running a charter at the convention centre tonight with new Toronto Bus Company legals on them. It looked like at least one had its Dallas logos removed too.
