Ford 29-B (HSR #88-92, 130-134)
Ten Ford 29-Bs were used by the HSR in the 1940s and 1950s. The buses arrived in Hamilton in 2 batches. 88-92 were built in 1943. 130-134 were originally built for the TTC as #775-779 in 1941, and were sold to the HSR in 1946. All 29-Bs were retired before the sale of the HSR to the City of Hamilton in 1959.
