Thomas Bus - VIN Number

My fellow Skooliers,

In the process of raising the roof of our bus, we inadvertently removed the VIN page that was at the front of the bulkhead, and it is no longer to be found. It is what is called a dough head move. Getting emissions today proved to be eventful.

Does anyone know where another VIN number location can be found on a:

2005 Thomas 40' School bus with a CAT engine.

Thanks in advance.

On your title or registration paperwork. With a few formalities Daimler might make you a new plate

See if there’s one in the engine compartment. On my conventional busses they have a second tag on the firewall maybe Thomas does the same thing on the flat nose

True. Luckily I was able to title and get the first round of registration done before the plate was lost. Thanks for the idea.

Thank you. I will scour the bay and look for one.
