I was able to attend the New York Transit Museum's Bus Festival this year, part of the "Atlantic Antic" street festival in Brooklyn. A very large crowd on hand, and even a brief shower did not dampen anyone's enthusiasm. The Transit Museum also offered free admission. The buses were a hit with all ages, bus fans and otherwise. Here is a sampling of what was on display.

2969 RF
#2969 - 1949 GM Model TDH-5101 (original #4789 - renumbered as the "Jackie Gleason Bus")


1059 RF

236 RF
#236 - 1980 Grumman Flxible Model 870


1502 RR

Nice photos, Bill. I need to make it to the festival one of these years. Seeing the interiors of those buses sure brings back some memories of riding Old Look and New Look buses back in the day!

One of these days I'll have to make the trip down from Montreal to see this. And to do some fanning too. Wink
