new 4104
« on: January 30, 2014, 07:52:06 AM »


A new "busnut" just contacted me. He has a 4104#2683 and was wanting to know any history of it.

 RJ speak up also tell us people in the frozen south how nice it is your way.

Uncle Ned I have not talked to Gary in a while, Do you think we can should just show up in Ten without letting that guy that owns the property know. Maybe we should give a call out to TN and test the water.

I know where the Wal-Mart is so I think we can get waffle mix and bacon. I have a waffle maker like Gary's so we can make more at a time. You think that guy in TN knows were are talking about him. Will have to e-mail Ken to see what his plans are. How do we get a few more people to show up.

A new "busnut" just contacted me. He has a 4104#2683 and was wanting to know any history of it.

PD4104-2683 was delivered new as fleet number M-1189 in June of 1957 to Southeastern Greyhound Lines, HQ'd in Lexington, KY.  It was part of a 40-bus order by SEGL.  SEGL placed an addtional three orders totaling 24 coaches that were also delivered in June/July of '57.

Ned -

55o and partly cloudy today in Fresburg, possibility of rain later this week.  Keep your fingers crossed, we need a HUGE snowpack to replenish the diminishing water supply.

FWIW & HTH. . .

RJ Lake Folsom is almost gone. You can walk across the American River in a lot of places. Citrus this year is pretty dry and not as sweet as it was last year. People in Auburn are re-drilling wells deeper by 300 feet just pull water. Worse I have ever seen here.  I guess we will have to reverse the pumps and bring it back from AZ and LA, LOL
