The Cover Story:

This month we conclude our look at the bus building history of the Canadian Car & Foundry Company.  The first article from Mike Taylor-Noonan covers the fascinating history of the company, including its beginnings, war time contribution and eventual entry in into the bus market, where it was actually more successful than its U.S.-based counterpart.  The second article follows on from the articles in Bulletins 105 and 110, and covers the larger gasoline and diesel-powered products that kept the company going in the bus industry throughout the 1950s.
