I believe the missing window was due to the front doorway being widened to accommodate a wheelchair lift.

Look how close the doorpost is to the wheelwell in the photo of Santa Monica 5180 in the OP ...

As far as I can tell they still run GM fishbowls in Toronto and Saskatoon to this very day. Not sure where else though.

Thank you, Cliff, for patiently answering what turned out to be one of the dumbest questions that I have ever asked in my life (we ...

If I remember correctly almost every seat on our baby Gilligs except for the back row is facing sideways, including some on the high-floor section; I'm not sure how that ADA requirement means almost e ...
