Hamilton Street Railway 510261-510264 were Overland ELF 125 CNG bodied buses on Ford E-450 van chassis bought in 2002 for service on routes 52A Dundas Local, 16 Ancaster, 6 Aberdeen, 7 Locke and 8 York. Bus 510261 was used exclusively for Gore to Shore Shuttle Service.

These buses were fraught with reliability problems and spent most of their service time in the garage. Drivers also complained about back and neck discomfort due to the distance from the driver's cab to the front doors. This set was retired in 2007 and replaced by the 2007 New Flyer DE41LFs. All 4 can be found at the rear of Cardinal Kia on Oakwood Drive in Niagara Falls, ON.
