doghouses

Does a type D FE bus have a doghouse inside the bus for the engine?

Yes. In the pictures, you will almost always see diamond-plate covering the doghouse. The entry stairs are also at an angle.

Thanks. I have looked for pics but the only interior pics I see are looking to the rear of the bus.

I'll see if I have any pics. My Ward/AmTran has a HUGE doghouse over the engine. Requires a bit of contortion to get into the seat, but I got a new air ride seat that will help out with that a tiny bit as its slimmer.
I'm also planning to build my own, more substantial doghouse with a tabletop on it so I can use that space.
Having a nice rear door is worth it.

Sorry I couldn't get better pix of the doghouse, but it DOES show part of it.
