3 Days Till Spring Fling

Just 3 days till our annual Spring Fling. Saturday the doors open at 8:30AM for a day of fun, bus memorabillia for sale and buses (vintage & modern) on display. The bus flea market takes place inside the museum, and the food court will also be located inside. Our friends at Wolf's Bus Lines will operate a shuttle bus between the museum & the annex so you may view the buses stored at the annex. Looking at Saturday's forecast looks like clouds & sun, hopefully no rain on our outside bus display. We look forward to seeing you Saturday.

Fleet Update

Fleet update: board member Dino Mandros continues to search for a technical-vocational school to paint the GM TGH-3301 back to it's original Colonial Williamsburg grey & white. Several schools have been contacted but none have the space available. Also, Peter Pan Coach Builders in Springfield MA worked on the 1975 MCI MC-8, the only bus physically damaged in the flood. The coach was formerly in th...e livery of Red Lion Tours and is now repainted as Peter Pan 158 and sports the Peter Pan livery of that era. The coach was found to be solid despite the flood damage and thanks to the Peter Pan Coach Builders team it looks great. We expect the bus back in time for display at the Spring Fling. More updates to come soon.

MBT Board Meeting Time Change

The MBT Board has had a very busy Winter meeting season. Thanks to the mild weather none of our first Tuesday of the month meetings were cancelled. Our last few meetings of 2011 were very long so we have changed the starting time of the monthly board meetings to 6:00PM in order for the meetings to finish at a decent hour. Most meetings last about 2 and a half hours. Remember all board meetings are open to all MBT members and are held at the museum in Hershey.
