Acadian Lines 118 at Truro, Nova Scotia - 7 Sep 1992 (Ref 173-26)

Acadian Lines 118 at Truro, Nova Scotia - 7 Sep 1992 (Ref 173-26)
Monday 7 September 1992 (approx 0955) - Today I travelled on the Acadian Lines 0800 ‘all stops’ service from Halifax to Sydney (Nova Scotia) trip 53 – a journey of approx. 270 miles taking 7 hours 50 minutes. The driver (Keith Parker) sprints back to the assembled passengers during the loading of baggage and parcels traffic. Our coach today was number 118, a 1989 MCI MC9 Crusader Special, which was seen at the company’s terminal at 280 Willow Street in Truro. 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 its passengers comfortable waiting and refreshment facilities. Note the lettering on the brickwork in the background showing passengers where they are. (Ref 173-26)
