Considering it's Commercial I figure she goes here, This was a one day thing, my mom usually drives a regualr old 45 foot bus, but they gave her this for the day yesterday, she did drive Short Bus and Vans for another Company that was told were to stick there keys, and will remain nameless, Ahem it ryhmes with Wormway (Ah hell what do I care, sue me, DurhamWay) First student was Laidlaw, Anyway, thought this might be good reference, couldn't get any under the hood or inside. They installed these new alarms that have sensors and say "The authorites have been notified" Although they have been having problems with them setting off the horn.

Hmmmm, Nick!

Now that I like, and Kudo's to your Mom for driving, keeping kids safe on the way to and from school! Now, you see, I have this assortment of Johnny Lightning 1/24 scale diecast '04 Ford E-250 cargo vans (I had a big hand in designing those for JL--'nuther story that one), so I got the test shots, have several of them in Coca Cola markings--now you have given me some ideas, if I ever get a certain 1904 Knox truck finished.

Yeah she's been driving school bus for almost 6 years now, everything from coach buses to vans. I've never seen a diecast econoline before, I'd love to see a picture of one, I'm thinking of building something like this using a Rescue 911 ambulance kit I have.
