Windsor – Detroit Tunnel Entrance c 1974

1124

 

A neat shot showing the long running GM new look coaches. The last of these weren’t retried until about 4 or 5 years ago.

The old sign at the tunnel entrance is long gone, as is the old GREYHOUND marquee on the old bus station. Along the awning of the bus station, you can make out the S.W. & A lettering. That name remained in use until 1977, when it was renamed Transit Windsor.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Because I’ve had many people asking about it, unfortunately there isn’t going to be an International Metropolis calendar for  2015.

 

The layout is usually done and sent to press in late September or early October. This year a few projects got in the way, and before I knew it, it was too late to get it done for this year.

So… for everyone looking forward to it, I’m sorry, but I blew it for this year.

 

Check back this time next year, and look forward to the all new and revived 2016 IM calendar.
