Eye candy for a bus site...

Seeing this door location makes me want to buy an RE and get to work.

Those are foreign buses, top one in Brazil, bottom one probably from the UK. Some cool looking hardware there.

Here are two very different examples of half-cab designs! The first one is an airport bus for Sao Paulo's Congonhas airport, probably with locally-made Brazilian bodywork. The second one is an English half-cab Leyland Tiger with what looks like pre-war Duple bodywork, a real classic: Old Bus Photos » Leyland Tiger PS

East Kent Leyland Tiger CFN 104

Now that there is a fiiiine bus.

(The maroon one).




I gotta be honest, some of the cabs beside the engine look a little funny to me, but that one gets the lines just right.
