Anyone ever visit Parkersburg WV and take bus pix?
« on: June 06, 2006, 07:27:07 PM »
Hi There!

I am hoping that someone on this board may have, or know where I can get pictures of the Parkersburg WV Neoplan buses when they were in service from the mid 80's up till the early 2000's...

My particular interest is bus 24 (my little bus) but any will do. I would love to make a scrapbook and I really could use some pictures of these little buggers in service.

There were only 7 of these down there. 6 of them are scrapped in a yard in ohio...well, 2 of them are running and in decent shape, and they dont want a whole lot for them either, and I have the other running one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Shawn,
Try eBay,
You'll find a lot of photo's of buses for sale from all over the world.
Contact some of the sellers and ask them if they have what you need.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Man, it really is a very small world.  I live in Marietta OH, which is across the river and about 20 miles upstream from Parkersburg, and I drive thru Pburg twice a day going to and from work.

Unfortunately I’ve never taken pics of the little buses running around, but I could.  I see the red and white Neoplan(s) in town all the time.  If you’d like I could toss the digicam in the car and try to get a shot or two.
