All very nice looking buses.
They shouldn't tease with the crown in the opening slideshow though.

I just checked these Coaches...............these are Thomas West Coasters..........these were designed specifically to go up against Crown...........These buses of Course aren't Crowns............and they are disadvantaged in that they have the CAT:

But these West Coasters, in my opinion, have a build quality that far exceeds anything Thomas builds today.............The West Coaster may in fact be, again, my opinion, the Best Coaches Thomas ever built. Much better quality that the Safe-T-Liner..............And of course.........down the Road a 6V92 in the back of one of these baby's would be pretty sweet.............

I'd advise you Skoolie Folks to check those Coaches out............though they have sat too long.........and are underpowered.............you could do a hell of a lot worse than have one of these as your platform to build.............
