At first I thought this was an RTS -- has front and center doors.

Most likely a 50ft European bus. I know that Van Hool Europe makes 50ft transit, and that looks like one.  Good Luck, TomC

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
