Rollsigns from Woodstock, ON
Public transportation in the area of Woodstock began with interurban electric railway
service provided by the Woodstock, Thames Valley and Ingersoll Electric Railway
Company. Rail service was abandoned in 1925, after which bus service took over.
The service was ultimately discontinued in 1945.
Recorded city transit service in Woodstock started mid century (1940's / 1950's) with
Bluebird Coach Lines. The City of Woodstock took over transit operations in the early
1970's and continues to this date, operating what some refer to as "a working museum"
of older vehicles such as 35 foot GMC New Looks, both original to the system, and ones
acquired second hand form several other systems such as Brantford, Cambridge, Hamilton,
Oakville, Orillia, Stratford, and Welland, Ontario, as well as some from Santa Monica, California.
This front mylar rollsign is off of 1973 built
GMC T6H-4523A #19 (ex Welland, Ontario
#124, 2-ex Santa Monica, California). The
11 exposure sign has no print date. The
image of this sign was drawn virtually
perfect to scale.
