To celebrate his last day after more than 40 years on the job, Angus McIntyre took a Brill trolley out for a ride yesterday evening, packed with friends, colleagues, and well-wishers!

Angus followed his regular 7 Dunbar/Nanaimo route, and the Carnival Band surprised him with a performance at Nanaimo Station. I wasn’t able to make it out for the ride, but folks have said he was properly surprised by the gesture!

Check out the Carnival Band’s blog for more pictures and stories. There’s also a lovely item over at Vancouver is Awesome. Edit: Dennis has sent along an album of photos as well!

Plus here’s a photo of the Brill Angus was driving (followed by another one)!

Two Brills were in fact part of Angus's retirement ride. Photo by <a href=http://www.flickr.com/photos/35698624@N07/4658869611/in/set-72157624055517565/>Wayne Worden</a> of the Carnival Band.
