taken at Penticton, BC in July 1942

This coach, Courier 100, we had from 1947 until about 1957.
Original Specs:

  • 33 passenger
  • No A/C
  • No Toilet
  • 148 HP Red Diamond International engine
  • 30 feet overall length


This coach is now owned by Ed Halonen. The coach is #535. It was sold to Rocky Mountain Tours then went to Riverbend Trailways. This company was owned by Harold Zielke, who drove the Big Bend for a couple of year or so. The buss was later sold to a bus company in Kamloops, BC, Western Bud Lines, I think. A fellow by the name of Brian Hughes then bough the bus and brought it to Kelowna, BC.

The emergency door has been moved prior to it being brought to Kelowna. The engine has been changed to a GMC V6 gas powered engine. Brian Hughes also owns 513 and several series 900's.
