Orions! (and a few New Flyers)

Since New Flyer bought out the last remaining part of Orion (Orion Parts) I thought it fitting to start posting pictures of both kinds of coaches in service for Pierce Transit, of Tacoma, WA. Most of these are older scans, and with most of the coaches in these pictures having long been retired, or the services they were on cancelled they are pictures that probably cannot be recreated ever again.

1987 Orion 1.508 #407 Freshly returned from the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, UT.
 
1990 Orion 1.508 #421 In service at the Puyallup Fair
 
1998 New Flyer C40LF's lined up at the Freedom Fair for post fireworks service lined up on N. 30th in Tacoma.
