Bus Mechanics List
« on: May 22, 2023, 11:46:31 AM »
I found a list of Bus Mechanics in my files and I am not sure now what the source is.  You can click on the link below to view the list. 

Let me know if you recognize the list and know its history.

I will leave it on here at least for a while and if you have any changes you would like made, please list them here and I will update the Master List as I get time.

As much as I would like to keep this one as my own personal "bus guru," he should be on the list:

Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

DFW Bus Service and Repair
Julian Castaneda
(214)293-6401

As far as I know, he is only mobile (no shop).  He worked for Greyhound for a long time and then MCI.  He was in charge of the Dallas MCI shop for a while.  In fact, if you watch the MCI J4500 Orientation Walkthrough Video on YouTube (https://youtu.be/1NoXzCYjZnU?si=hl4HRc-FdJa-2Ntk), he is the one doing the walkthrough.  I don't know if he goes back as far as two-strokes, but he definitely knows the four-strokes AND has the computer to do all the diagnostics.

Really good guy and very fair...

I am not sure how active he is, but Tejas Coachworks in Mineral Wells Texas.  He evidently had as a primary business buying buses and preparing them for conversion.  He had lot of very cool old buses (I specifically remember a 1956 Starliner).  His website says repair so I guess his retirement plans didn't quite pan out LOL
