Mechanical work on 4107 continues…

This past Sunday (17th March 2024) Sean Keating, Kyle Little and Jason Sharpe removed the front wheels of 4107. They’ll repack bearings and inspect brake drums and suspension.

While archiving some documents I came across these notes:

The pages describe 730’s (as UPF 642) few months on its last assignment in Maple Ridge (after service in Powell River and Mission). That was 1987, and really, nothing has changed. It does reinforce our decision to convert 4107 as a second museum bus to handle most of our outreach program!
