No, this isn't 1962! It's 2018. This weekend, the Transit Museum Society took their 1954 Brill T-48A bus out for tours around Vancouver to celebrate 70 years of trolley operations. The driver, Angus, is one of the most interesting and nicest people I've ever met. He drove the bus a good 10 blocks out of the way in order to be able to come down Burrard, so the fans and I could make this shot a reality. In the background is the Electra Building. It was built in 1957 as BC Electric headquarters but was converted to condominiums in the late 90s. BC Electric was taken over by the provincial government in 1960, including all associated transit operations. The BC Hydro logo was applied to the Brill's in 1962. TransLink is currently responsible for transit operations in Vancouver and the surrounding municipalities. The Transit Museum Society is a non-profit organization that owns and restores pieces of transit history so we can create scenes like this for future generations.
