Hi all
L: How did Jose miss this one??? Herb, you rascal, you've earned your detective's badge with this one.
  
That's quite a beast - Is it a bus? Is it a train?? Someone really got their wires crossed when they designed this one. It has a face only a mother could love...and I'm not too sure about what type of a mother??

A London double-decker bus crossed with a 1/2 a freight-car chassis and sporting US style locomotive number-boards?? 

Don't you just love the drivers sunshade and the suicide-door cocked open for ventilation on the upper deck??

And the washtub hanging on the front ? Does it wash clothes on the way?

I think that the upper deck is a sleeping section---

But could you sleep in that thing? Even if it was standing still?

Missing a couple dead wombats hanging on the front for lunch......

It looks like that thing's got the wrong number on the front.

It should be #666.

It started life as a Pickwick Nite Coach, introduced in 1928, Greyhound absorbed Pickwick in 1930. Lasted in regular service until 1933, came equipped with a restroom and food service. 53 passenger double deck set up.

I think most people here failed to pick up on the reference. Anyone who's ever gone through I-95 in South Carolina would have had to be asleep for several hours on the trip not to pick up on references to this place: http://www.thesouthoftheborder.com/
I've gone by it a few times in my life but never actually stopped. Pedro is so sad at that, to quote the signs you see once you've passed the place.
I heard they used to have a park train there, but couldn't find much about it.

Well then, who among you is MACHO enough to build this thing? If I didn't have sooo much to do already, I might build it. However, I don't believe it would stay upright on 24" gauge rails.
Oh well...

Woodie

Bring your own washing powder & clothes pegs. Maybe the cool, executive way to travel way back when ?.
