Shoot. . . I've been a busnut since I was a kid, and rode this bus back when it was new in 1955.  Used to sit in the front seat across from the driver, and marvel at him making change and shifting the manual gearbox at the same time. . .

I've even had the wonderful opportunity to drive it, too - whooo hooo!

Plus I own a bus that used to belong to a company I worked for - and it was my favorite in the fleet at the time!

Pretty sad, eh?

 Hi Russ;
          This looks alll too familiar,  do you work in Williams, Ca?  Saw a siimilar bus and similar story when I
          stopped by.  Name of company is Coach Services in Williams.      Thanks,    Merle.

Merle -

I'm in Fresno.

Bus is owned by the Pacific Bus Museum, it's stored at their facility in Fremont, CA.

Coach Services also has several of the PBM's fleet parked around his place.  If you saw 246 in Williams, it was probably up there to either have Ted do some work on it, or on a "work party" run.

FWIW. . .
