The specialty videos are for the collector who has an interest in or is a collector of one type. We start out with the Trailways selection. Again, mostly action with a blend of scrapbook style, mainly in the very old images. In most instances, the only place in the world you can find this coverage is right here. Lots of "insider stuff" too. I was the Trailways photographer for several years as I was for the Eagle bus which Trailways built. Once again, I can’t list everything as this catalog would start looking like the New York phone book. So look carefully!
HISTORY OF BURLINGTON TRAILWAYS AND AMERICAN BUS LINES. Answer me this? Who was America’s first Coast-To-Coast bus line under single ownership? Greyhound? Nope.
The Greyhound system was Coast-To-Coast, but remember in the early days they were a franchise operation and you went through several different divisions on a Coast-To-Coast trip.
All American Bus Lines (never a threat to Greyhound) was however a Coast-To-Coast operation under single ownership, thus America’s first Coast-To-Coast carrier. This is a very entertaining video. The cars here will amaze you. Many you never knew even existed.
They bought the mighty Burlington Trailways and then both operations were, in turn, bought out by Continental Trailways in 1954.
