Acadian Lines terminal at Antigonish, Nova Scotia - 7 Sep 1992 (174-01)

Acadian Lines terminal at Antigonish, Nova Scotia - 7 Sep 1992 (174-01)
Monday 7 September 1992 (Labour Day) (approx 1150) – The Acadian Lines terminal at 53 James Street, Antigonish, Nova Scotia. During the time that the company was owned by three enterprising businessmen (brothers Gordon and George Thompson and Ralph Pepper) the company established a number of well-appointed terminals on its network offering passengers comfortable waiting and refreshment facilities. In this view all four stands on the loading ramp were occupied. The coaches are (from left to right): 118 (a 1989 MCI MC9 Crusader Special working the 0800 Halifax to Sydney trip 53 (taking a break here 1150-1220); 113 (a 1980 MCI MC9 working the 0730 Sydney to Halifax trip 72 (taking a break here 1110-1140); 913 (a 1978 GMC P8M 4905A parked as spare which was later used in service as I saw it parked up in Sydney at 1400 the next day); and 103 (a 1984 MCI MC9 Crusader also working the 0730 Sydney to Halifax trip 72). Highway 104 runs alongside the site beyond the crash barrier seen on the right. Looking at Google Streetview in 2015 the building carries a sign for an orthodontic practice with little or no change to the general exterior layout. (Ref 174-01)
