note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

Autobus Page


The Main Automotive page is a cover page to tie in my
    Chrysler, et seq.
    (with the Walter P. Chrysler story).
    Mercedes page, et seq.
    SS and Jaguar Cars, et seq..
    Civil War era Dudgeon (really!) Steam Automobile - still operable!
    the Long Island Motor Parkway page, et seq.
    and the L. I. Motor Parkway Panel
    (convened to keep the LIMP alive in situ and in minds and museums).
      LIMP-Vanderbilt Cup Race page.
    Tractors page.
    Road/Highway Schnabels (giant road loads/heavy haulers), et seq..
and other related pages, plus a place to put more auto apocrypha
  the ALCO,
  and a HELP Section.

The CYCLOPS now has it's own page.

This Autobus Page is unindexed; please scroll away!

note-rt It appears that this page got posted with no content whatsoever -
that will be remedied but, for the moment, please accept my apologies.   rev (09 Apr 2016)

The 1853-65 DUDGEON Steam Wagon was an omnibus of sorts, q.v.   new (09 Apr 2016)

Repeating from my Automotive Page 2, here is my late RRing buddy and famous and prolific LIRR author and publisher (Weekend Chief) John Scala's beautifully-restored 1969 GMC TDH3301A bus:   added (09 Apr 2016)

(Oct 02 photo by J. J. Scala - all rights reserved)

The picture was taken at Cantiague Rock Park in Hicksville in Oct 2002.  The bus seats 33 and sports a 8.2L Detroit Diesel 8 cylinder 4-stroke "fuel pincher" engine.  It bears serial number 048, meaning it was the 48th bus built of this model (that usually trails the TDH designation); GM's designations tell it all:

    T-transit, D-diesel, H-Hydramatic transmission, 33-passengers, 01- series and A for air conditioned (thanks, John).

It may be stubby but THAT'S A BUS!

If you consider Volkswagen buses as buses, see the rail versions at LIRR VW Railbuses
    [Railbuses, railcars, railvans, Kombis, transporters, Gandy-wagons, Gandywagens, etc.].   added (09 Apr 2016)
