I've browsed through this thread without any luck. Maybe I went crosseyed for a bit but I'm still looking for any graveyards near Cincinnati, Ohio. Any help is much appreciated.

This should help - it's by no means complete, but I have found several good parts buses at the yards listed below.

Junkyard parting out busses at times

At times A&A Truck Parts Inc. parts out some busses at this time they have
1 Thomas on 1H3800
10 Bluebird on GM Frame
1 Bluebird Rear Engine
1 Thomas Rear Engine
1 Collins short bus on GM Frame

So if you need a rear end ratio change they can help you out

It's northeast of North Vernon, about a third of the way between town and I-74. Probably easier to get to via US 50.
The guy has a lot of cool old goverment-issue buses that never saw school service - prison buses and such. They're still in pretty solid shape for the most part.

Bus Salvage Between OKC and ATL.

So I'm flying out tomorrow to OKC to pick up my bus finally on Wed. I'm hoping to find a salvage yard I can secure a second Thomas MPV-EF rear door.
Any one know of any place specifically along that route?
