It is definitely a 4515. Could be either a TDM or a TDH since there was a choice of transmissions. It does not appear on the OMOT delivery lists for either model so they bought it used.

Not only did Edwards participate in a Greyhound pool, they were one of the few carriers allowed to buy GM PD-3751 Silversides new. Two such buses, fleet numbers 145-146 (serial numbers 376-377), were ...

It's not a trolley coach. Standard diesel RTS equipped with trolley poles used to cut ice and sleet on trolley wires during inclement weather. There were several of these at one time. All gone now.

I believe that some of the confusion about the rear end of the PD4102 can be traced to one bus. Back in 1950 or 1951, a PDA4101 belonging to a Trailways division in Colorado was involved in a head-on ...
