Miscellaneous CCL Buses

This page is a collection of the odds & ends of the Canada Coach Lines buses that are in my photo collection.

Some of the dates for these photos are unknown, and the locations are often just a guess. If you know either date or location, email me!

Several buses trying to cross the Humber River bridge, late October/Early November 1954

Several buses trying to cross the Humber River bridge on Lakeshore Rd in Toronto in October 1954. From top to bottom are a TTC CC&F C36 bus (#1103?), a former Roseland Bus Lines White 706M bus, a TTC Ford transit bus still in the colours of its previous owner Roseland Bus Lines, and CCL #1431, a Flxible 29BR-45. The former Roseland Bus Lines White 706M bus looks like it's in CCL colours, and it may be. Roseland Bus Lines, which had been bought out by the TTC a few months before, owned a single White 706M bus. It had been purchased from a Catholic convert in Hamilton in 1950, and was in a unique paint scheme that was very similar to the CCL's. It is possible that the bus was a former CCL bus that was never repainted by either of its subsequent owners. The TTC never used this bus and set it aside to be scrapped, but it looks like the TTC pulled it off the scrap line for emergency service.
