All Thomas Bus Plans found

So, I found a link to Thomas Bus Companies Floor plan & seating dimensions. Unfortunately each PDF is titled and filed after a particular quote, and not a body style... So, if someone was so inclined they could dig through the massive number of quotes, until they found one that matches the bus they were thinking of buying, and then, *blam* they'd have dimensions...

You might also find some other interesting stuff in there, if you're willing to dig.

www.thomasbusonline.com - /seats/

For example here's a full size RE.

Here's a 10 window 1000S body, which is what I'm looking at buying.

Please note... this resource is unlikely to last forever... so get them while they're available

Does yours have the stretched first window?

I think you should be able to compare the body number on your decal. This image is for a "1110" body.

Yes, i have the stretched front window. I don't know how to find my bus body number

edit - I'm already halfway through my build, but it's still a cool thing to have. And, you have a perfect stencil of your bus. Pretty cool if you want to make any graphics and designing paint jobs as well as getting the dimensions

At the bottom of the sticker it says
BODY ID: 35904-9622099-C-1000S
96 is the year,
The 1000 is the body type.
IDK what the rest is

Okay, cool. Thank you for that. I'll check next time I'm at the bus.

Thank you for the resource! Takes some digging, but will be helpful for anyone making their plans

Thomas describe their bodies by "body section".

So a bus with 14 windows would be "1400", with 11 windows it would be "1100". Each body section has one window.

Their rear engine buses have extra body behind the last window, and that is described in inches.

So ... my 14 window bus would be "1400", but it has an additional 10 inches at the rear so it is 14 + 10", or "1410".

The body ID is a different number. Each bus has a unique identifier.

Ok, sweet. I have 11 windows with the extra row behind, so I found the right one.
