That picture may have been the model for a QSC Christmas card about 15 years ago

It's a nice shot, thanks for posting it, but that bus certainly does not appear "new"....or is it the route that is new at that time?

That's a great historical image; thanks for posting (I'm not old enough to remember those ACFs running up and down Jewel Avenue; I only date back to the TDH-5106 era Smile )

You're welcome. The photo was taken in 1951 so the route was new at the time having started that November.

Former Queens-Nassau Transit ACF C-44 renumbered to 35 and working for American Sightseeing tours.

The complete panel below the windshield seems to be taken off a GM old look.
