In this 1982 photo, we see one of SOMERSET's Champions along a more-sedate Fishbowl, awaiting their next runs.

Timeless classics, both.............

When I lived in Omaha, in 1971-1973, the Omaha Transit Company entire fleet consisted of these Twin's, IIRC... The only GMC New Look's that came into town, were those from cross-river Council Bluffs ...

Pretty cool stuff.

All:

About 1950, the CTA ordered 500 propane powered TWIN COACHES (Model #520-S2P)

A nostalgic view (1981) of TRIBORO Fishbowl #911 (that number is truly ironic)
