White 706M (CCL #701-789 (odd))

Three batches of White 706Ms were bought by the Canada Coach Lines. CCL #701-721 were built in 1937, #723-739 in 1938, and #741-789 in 1939.

One 706M was destroyed in a horrific collision with a CNR passenger train on September 10, 1943 at Waterdown Road in Aldershot. Nine other 706Ms were sold off to other owners.
