Had 4 Mack bull dogs, sold them on kijiji about a month ago...needed something a little different. Think we only have a couple of Macks left in the fleet, most of the new trucks/tractors are Internationals and Freightliners with the odd Pete and Western Star.

Wasn't sure what was going to happen at hi-way speeds [100 -120 kmh],
so I made them removable.
Bus sits in storage from Nov - April, didn't want them to go missing or get damaged.

Friend of mine just gave me this for the bus, had it kickin' around his garage for a few years and decided it needed to be installed on something.
Brass train whistle...this thing weighs 10-15 lbs, held on with 3 3/8 bolts.

... what happened to spring?

Well I was wanting to bring the ol' Mule home this week to start working on the tailgate...Mother Nature had a different plan. Freezing rain with snow. Accidents everywhere, no hydro in some spots, all round crappy day....so I stayed home.

Uggh.. I had the displeasure of driving from Sault Ste Marie to Ottawa yesterday afternoon in that mess of ice and slush. 2 hands on the wheel the whole time.

Can you post a video of that train whistle when you get it choochin'? That thing looks mean..

Hydro went out couple of times...

Oh ya it looks very cool, specially when the sun is beaming down ....but it's crap, nothing else good about it IMO. New drivers make thing interesting as well.

That would've been a hell of a drive...how long did that take?

The video, hmmm? Do you have an easy way to explain how to up load to here? I can take the video on my camera once it's hooked up.
Had ECCB pm me with instruction for pics. I'm not much of a computer guy...I get by.
