And completing the MaBSTOA GM New Looks, express bus T6H-5310A's 4500-4505 and regular T6H-5309A's 4800-4859 in early 1973, then closing the book with 4860-4919 in the summer. Those no doubt would have replaced the last of the FACL/ST Fishbowls (up to 3220 ex A/C 10).

W.B.:

When were these buses retired?

Were any of these a/c equipped coaches?

As 'MABSTOA 15' noted, all those 1973 buses ordered for MaBSTOA were A/C. Unrebuilt, they lasted to about 1990; as rebuilt by Blitz, the last were retired in 1995.

What I find most interesting is the fact that the Flxible fishbowls were all retired between 1990 and 1993 and not one was rebuilt!

However, Blitz rebuilt 350 GM fishbowls from the same period as the Flxibles including 23 TDH-5303, the first with air-conditioning and bat-wings were rebuilt. As well as, 145 T6H-5305A that came in 1968 and 1970; 10 9 T6H- 5309A that were purchased in 1971 and 1972 and 73 T6H-5310A that also came in 1971 and 1972.

These buses were all retired in 1995.

No, but a few of 'em were renumbered . . .

But there's the answer. Rebuilt, the GM Fishbowls all outlasted the Flxies.
