I had the opportunity to visit the city yesterday and ride on the vintage buses operating along 42nd Street. It was great to be able to see these gems in action, brought back a lot of memories. Many heads were turning at the sight of the buses and many pedestrians had their phones out snapping pictures as they passed. People waiting at the bus stops didn't quite know what to do when one of the vintage buses rolled up. The drivers had to convince many of them that it was indeed the M42 crosstown, but once on board, everybody had a great time. Here are some pictures.

Beautiful shots Bill - thanks for sharing. I really wish the TA would run the vintage buses on the week between Christmas and New Years but they usually end this service after the 24th. Maybe someday I'll take a day off before Christmas to ride and photograph them.

I took a walk up to 42nd Street at lunch time today (I work on 34th) and saw both 9098 and 2969. They were passing each other at 8th Ave. They sounded great! I wish 6259 (Mack C-49DT) was out and about as well. I'd love another ride on that old beauty. I hope they are still running next week, I didn't have time today for a ride.
