To celebrate his last day after more than 40 years on the job [2], 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 [3] 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 [4] 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)!
