Manufactures/ Builders

Welcome to this new section of Barp.ca!

Over time, we've built up a collection of material from vehicle manufactures, components suppliers, and transit agencies that detail their equipment. The purpose of this page is to bring all of that information together into one section of this website. Consider this to be version 1.0 of this section. For now, it will just be a single page split up into motor buses, trolleybuses, and streetcars/ rapid transit. Some of the material on this page was put out by the transit agencies and covers multiple makes/ models of vehicles. In some cases, these documents could be linked to from multiple locations within Barp.ca (such as Edmonton material!) and in other cases, like the SEPTA trackless trolley document, this might be the only place on Barp that you'll find it given the lack of SEPTA content on here otherwise.
In the future if we have enough material, we might break this section into manufacture specific pages. We will also be starting up a demonstrator photos segment within this section, initially drawing on the material already on Barp. Finally, included on this page is a Spottings page I started this page back in 2008 and it has been lurking around in the background on the server since then. My intentions were two fold. First, to detail different features between different years of bus production. Examples would be changes between GM New Look models, or the changes during the course of NovaBus LFS production. Second, and what I've primarily built so far, are examples of older buses. The late Peter Cox allowed me to scan a bunch of black and white negatives from his collection and I was curious what these buses were and this page was built as a result. For now it is a limited reference, but, it is a start!

All PDF's are fully searchable, so, search engines should be able to crawl them and provide links to them from search engines. We're hoping to be able to get a lot of information out there that might not otherwise exist.

Special thanks to 'Captain Trolley' who supplied us with most of the initial documents on this page.

If documents to pertain to a specific city/ operation, those are noted in brackets on the date line.

Feedback is always welcome, and we hope you enjoy this new section!
