Buses sighted
« on: November 14, 2013, 06:09:08 PM »
 Yesterday we saw an MCI, believe it was a 5 but did not get a good look at it, headed west about 2 miles from where I-20 and I-10 come together in Texas. Was it anyone here?  Also this morning after leaving Sonora Tx. headed east we saw 5 Prevosts headed west. No toads, looked new, no markings other that the paint jobs.
Used to own a 1968 MCI 5A with 8V71 and Allison MT644 transmission.

Clifford I believe they are already open in Santa fe springs. I saw them last month when I was down at Valley for the 3000 4000 series rebuild class.
