11 Thomas FE MVP's Oregon

I just caught 11 new listings on govdeals for some Beaverton, Oregon buses. I only looked a couple up and they spit out different engines than listed for some. You would probably have to call to confirm. I'm not sure if its the decoder's or their error.

I looked at several buses from the Beaverton school district. They are a well off school district that takes good care of their fleet. Their equipment is nice and loaded with the good stuff. These most likely all have auto tire chains, and great maintenance records. The contact seller (Beck it think) will answer any questions you may have.

The Sport Bus is gone! So we're down to just one. But this sort of situation is pretty close to how we ended up buying the Wanderlounge. Good bus at a good price and none of the desperately seeking buses buyers to be found.

I need to update my avatar.

I thought someone ran numbers and said they were AT545's, not 3060's. If they are 3060's then they are worth watching.

Nope, just went back looked and they are listed as having 3060's. Dang, more good buses I'd be interested in and they are 3k miles away.

Seriously, if they were RE I would give it a go, even though I am 99% in the Crown camp at this point.

I think your thinking of the Miami-Dade buses posted on another thread. Most of those had the AT545

Yeah I believe so. I know what they say, but you never know who is listing these things. I've seen lots of mistakes, but the info is probably correct. BTW they added more for 25 total if my quick count is correct.

Iíve got my eye on these, if you guys had to guess what do you think they will go for? Mostly the Cummins powered full-size ones?
