HSR 695 would be NLT 1967, it still has the GM logo on the front. The switched to GMC in 1968.

The trolley looks like 9012.

I did a write-up for T&W on Winnipeg's last run in 1970.
Ashton Wong

I believe that last photo (Wally's color photo from Angus) was 1958 based on the Oldsmobile 88 with dual headlights
Tom morrow
50:48
The Toronto trolley was 9085, and the photo is on Weston Rd at Keele loop, in December 1959. John Bromley photo
Tom morrow

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.

YRT uses the wrapped buses in Santa Claus parades in all 9 municipalities they serve
Andrew Crawford
57:05
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.
Mark Pompeo
58:51
I’m going to assume most systems didn’t do one because of no Santa clause parades, specifically for viva
Jim Bainter
01:00:11
Dayton used to print a schedule with both the Christmas trolleybus and Christmas Diesel. No run number.
David Stowe
01:00:26
Brampton uses Merry Christmas as well (but also displays messages for a long list of ethnic/multicultural holidays)
Bob
01:01:13
Very Nice!
Felix Tse
01:01:28
Oakville Transit has three - Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays.

London was the biggest user of the TD43; 15/26 built.
Mark Pompeo

GOTHIC
Tom morrow
01:09:26
How long did they stay in Christmas colors before repainting?
Bob
01:12:52
The fishbowls from 1980 had their licence plate to match the fleet number
Bob
01:14:15
It's a replate!
David Stowe
01:21:41
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
David Stowe
01:24:52
452 had electrical mods for the lights for the parade so was used multiple years
Ashton Wong
01:25:29
Interesting Linux penguin on the front haha
Mark Pompeo
01:25:54

David Stowe
01:26:14
"Themes" were tied to the theme for that year's parade IIRC
Mark Walton
01:28:49
2013 looked like 7-11.
Michael Roschlau
01:33:05
Kevin, sorry I wasn't able to join earlier but just wondering - are the London Transit wraps sponsored?
Bob
01:33:46

David Stowe
