Hey all,
I've been asked by a couple of people on this and other boards if we busnuts also collect bus toys and memorabilia.

I know I collect a few things now and then and that One of our other members does too.

I thought I'd start a thread and show off a few of my goodies now and then.

Feel free to post yours too. It doesn't matter if it's a toy or a piece of memorabilia,

Put it up here!

If anyone has objections, we can always delete this thread.

Hello Dallas-

I like the idea of this thread, as I wondered just how “nuts” some of these busnuts really are.

I see we have one in the same in your fleet- and an excelllent collection you have here, along witht the others' pieces!!  I like em'! They're all great!

As I’d mentioned in a previous thread and in “Chat”, I really love buses of all types-
I never went out of my way to get replicas or toys—but some how they found a way to my home.

I don’t have a monster collection or anything like that, but I do have several I would like to share-

Here are some pics of different stuff I have:

Cheers..

Here is a replica of my dad's 1960 4104.

He converted it in 1980 and had it until 2001. He also made this model....

Nick,

That's a shrp looking model!

I thought about trying to find a 4103 model and convert it into a 'mini'. Too bad Corgi wants so much money for theirs!

Well….
 Dallas, Pete, and Nick, either I’m a “thread killer”, or not many here have the same interest in the smaller coaches as us.

And beautiful model, Nick! I love it.

Either way, here are…

My “Conversions”

Now this is a totally different ball of wax-

What I’ve shown so far are neat to look at, but that’s it—just something nice to look at.

These babies move!

As a winter hobby of mine, I’ll take a small plastic bus (metal ones are too heavy) and “convert” it to electric power and run them on a track! I have a large track in my basement with a bus line running on it!
(I build other vehicles besides buses, as well).

These are my “runners”

The first one above has working headlights, too (hard to tell in the pic).

This is the German Komet-

As shown, the bonnet is removable so when I built it I detailed the engine as well.

Wow!
Those are KEWL!

Come on the rest of you Ladies and Gents,

Fire up the ol' camera and let's see what you got!



(Or I'll pull out pictures of all my tootsie toys and hot wheels buses!)

This is a Benz Coach-

I believe it was used as a fire transport for additional fire-fighters at a big blaze-

Thank you Dallas!

These are a group-photo of all (except one)of the original Slot-buses (in HO scale) that were made in Germany in the 60’s.

The first one a fellow sent me (also from Germany), and is a Setra

There’s nothing like having a “dead” 1/1 bus outside- and coming in and taking your frustration out on a running (albeit 1/64th scale) bus, inside. (Haven’t quite got to this point with the Brill, yet!)

A small but nice pain reliever and mental release….unless your kids want to “race” them and tear em’ up!

When I get this old girl sorted out and start working on her insides, I’ll bring a track to the first bus bash we attend with her. It should be quite fun!

With this I’ll leave this thread to die a “slow death”......

Cheers..

I have approx 25 various posters, approx 25 different pictures, all of old stuff.265 toy buses, from the rubber ones from the 30's to the newer ones. grreyhound stuff is most of my collection including an original still in the packeage greyhound inflatable pillow and a scenicruiser first air kit which is complete. I got started around 25 years ago an am always looking for new stuff. Oh yes I have approx in operating manuals and repair manuals, oh 30 or so. Hey I even have a greyhound thermos and several greyhound mechanics training manuals. more and more, oh my god.....tie tacks, tickets, postcards. etc. anyway you get the idea.

Hey BJ!

We can't ogle them if we can't see them.

I never thought about the repair and service manuals! I was just peering at the book case, (it's dark in here), and I think I've got about 25 different ones.

I have'nt gotten into the tietacks and other stuff yet, I want to find one each of the drivers caps for Greyhound and Trailways first.

I do have timetables, tickets, shop logs , driver reports, etc. from a lot of different companies.

Take some pictures and show off a little.

Cliff,

He made them out of wood.

Chopped a spruce tree down, cut it up into small pieces with a pen knife, then carved the small pieces with his finger nails! LOL...
