NOTES

This was the last bus purchased by the City of Nelson Transit System, famous in streetcar days for having had the smallest street railway system in the entire British Empire. The bus was damaged in a carhouse fire in 1975 but was rebuilt and used as a spare bus in Nelson until 1989. It was purchased for preservation in 1993 by Norm Smith in Victoria and transferred to the present owner for further preservation in 2003. It is currently on loan to the Transit Museum Society (TRAMS) in the Greater Vancouver area.
