HSR 695 would be NLT 1967, it still has the GM logo on the front. The switched to GMC in 1968.
imagine doing that today. People would complain like heck!
695 ended up as a storeshed with Double Deck Tours.
WOW That's Amazing!
It has speakers on the roof like the HSR bus
ttc made christmas buses out of units in the shop in noember that had just white primer. after new year went back for colors
The trolley looks like 9012.
And notice 1594 has the new route numbers, 86 Scarboro
Would have been across from Hilllcrest Shops
Looks like Don Mills Rd south of Lawrence. Bus facing SB
Looks like Eglinton maybe near Laird
I did a write-up for T&W on Winnipeg's last run in 1970.
I believe that last photo (Wally's color photo from Angus) was 1958 based on the Oldsmobile 88 with dual headlights
The Toronto trolley was 9085, and the photo is on Weston Rd at Keele loop, in December 1959. John Bromley photo
Wally had 4 photos, they're up on trolleybuses.net -- the other 3 photos, unfortunately, are B/W
The first of 40 T48As with both doors double; the only T48As so built.
"Creative" = big marketing budget
YRT uses the wrapped buses in Santa Claus parades in all 9 municipalities they serve
Sometimes they have up to 3 parades every year, requiring 2 wrapped buses (starting in 2016)
West Vancouver Municipal puts “Merry Christmas” as the alternating destination electronic sign display.
I’m going to assume most systems didn’t do one because of no Santa clause parades, specifically for viva
Dayton used to print a schedule with both the Christmas trolleybus and Christmas Diesel. No run number.
Brampton uses Merry Christmas as well (but also displays messages for a long list of ethnic/multicultural holidays)
Oakville Transit has three - Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays.
Great artist. Even the snow coming down from the window tops!
London was the biggest user of the TD43; 15/26 built.
doubt they’d do that now :(
Nice Night shot!
How long did they stay in Christmas colors before repainting?
The fishbowls from 1980 had their licence plate to match the fleet number
It's a replate!
Late 90's they began adding vinyl graphics along with paint. By early 2000's they would wrap the bus in white vinyl over the standard paint, with mix of paint and graphics
452 had electrical mods for the lights for the parade so was used multiple years
Interesting Linux penguin on the front haha
ha ha I thought that too ;)
"Themes" were tied to the theme for that year's parade IIRC
2013 looked like 7-11.
Kevin, sorry I wasn't able to join earlier but just wondering - are the London Transit wraps sponsored?
Awesome Job Kevin!
No, no sponsorships (at least not all the years I was there)
TMS will have a virtual light bus tour this year.
Happy Birthday Kevin, a great show. TransLink will have 10 reindeer buses this year.
