Snapped this Trolley Tours coach today ready to hop on the GSP for the quick 1/2 hour trip to Atlantic City.  :-)

Nice looking coach! An MCI E4500, I would think? I was happy to add six E4500s in 1/64 form to my diecast fleet not too long ago.  :wink:

Will you park Madame Charlie at a slot machine and go to the bus terminal for pictures?
You retirees have to keep busy after all.
I was hoping to get down to Niagara Falls last week but couldn't make it. One thing I wanted to check was what they do with all the buses that go to the casinos there. I know Niagara Falls Transit sells diesel fuel and makes tire repairs for out of town buses.

Rob,
        Most of the Tours Bus's that hit Niagara get serviced at Niagara Transit on Bridge Street. Just across the road from the Via Rail Station.

 The Mrs. will either be shopping or playing the penny slots - either way money will be spent.  :-(  The drivers that come to Atlantic City usually head over to Hansen's Bus World about a mile west of the boardwalk. Place has been there since 1987 - kinda like a truck stop only it's for buses.  8-) Here's a 10 year old article about the place - i could probably fill up 1-2 memory cards at this place.  :-D

Well Hansen's Bus World is no more.........at least in name. Drove through there this morning & talked to an attendant who told me they closed about a year ago and it's now an RV Resort/Marina with bus parking for those buses that still make the trip to AC. Nowhere near the bus traffic there was 20 years ago as the casinos as they don't give anything away so the seniors don't come like they did.
