I have not driven one personally but have been the passenger on a few. The ones I rode had the Cat 3208 and were very loud. If it is a gasser it is probably losts quiter. The head room is something different schools do differently. Some are much higher than others. Take a look at 422 sales, they do auctions frequently and the prices are not bad. They usually have a little of everything. Right now in MI they are auctioning off some rear engine Thomas buses with the high roof and basement storage boxes. At least the buses in the photos have the high roof and storage. Sometimes they use a picture of a similar bus. You can see them at ... &catid=402.

I love mine, but haven't driven a dog-nose or rear engine. I've got a Cummins diesel 555 ci engine, it's a bit loud, but not overly so. Once I get all the stuff in then I'll have a better idea about how loud it is--right now it's empty and like a big echo chamber.

But it's coming along nicely!

Great bus. Easy to drive, goes hiway speeds easily, handles like a big Ferrari.
