Charlotte Church and Montreal Accordion Style Bus

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is an absolutely beautiful song!
(Charlotte Church, National Orchestra of Wales - Carrickfergus.)  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took a couple of years ago.  Now, not all the Montreal buses look like this one...this particular one is known as the accordion style because it resembles an accordion in the middle of the bus. Basically, it is a bus twice as larger as the regular models. This model of bus is used on the busiest bus lines.  

In the last photo I took a picture of its interior...facing towards the back from the middle of the bus where the accordion split is.  There are three exit doors here instead of the usual two you find on other buses.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  3. Charlotte is one truly superb artist, in voice and style, and the bus, I think I saw one of these in Brisbane many years ago, they can turn corners a lot easier than the solid sided ones, is that the reason for the concertina part? Cheers from Jean

  26. Charlotte has always had a beautiful voice and she is getting more gorgeous each year, too. That bus has such happy colors and is so clean. It is good they have the extra seating for the busiest times. I can't imagine trying to drive it though especially around corners - - but they have training for it. I do as well as necessary with only my car.

  27. One of my favourite Irish songs Linda, In all my travels to the Emerald Isle from the sixties onward, it wasn't until 1998 I paid my first visit to Carrickfergus. Been back a few times since, but have still to take the castle tour.
    That's a lovely bus too.
