John Z,

I checked my records and.do not have that serial number. Do you know what its current status is?

Also got the patch, great design of a 4104 on it. Gonna have to put it on one of my hats to show it off to other bus nuts.

Yeah, 3236 is converted, and has been parked in northern Minnesota since 2000. Owner said it would start right up, but he is not interested in selling it, or any parts.

Glad you like the patch.

There's the 3 Scenics in Gila Bend Arizona. I also saw 4 in Wyoming while I was passing through when I bought my bus back to Connecticut. Did not have time to stop, 3 where at a farm along I80 and could be seen from I80 in the distance and another was along I80 same state. Maybe someone knows of these sorry I cannot provide more exact location's

Steve

We know about the Gila Scenics. the four in Wyoming? What were those? Scenics or 04s? Near any towns on I-80? Thanks for the help.

Thanks

The ones in Wyoming were all Scenics but as I was driving I was not able to keep track of any towns. I do know it was a wide open area and you could see the farm with the Scenics parked next to the house. Looked like they may have been using them for storage. The other was close to the road beside a gas station. Sorry I probably should have taken better info. This was while traveling east on I80 farm on the right, gas station on the left.

I just picked up PD-4104-772.  Conversion that was done recently and sporting a WVO tank.  She needs some TLC, but we hope to have her back in shape soon.  I will post pictures shortly.  According to someone on FB she was G-7228 at Great Lakes Greyhound Line.  Is there any way to find out what routes she ran?  The PO, said the got it from someone who had purchased it from a touring gospel group.  Would love to know who that was too. 

Thanks,
