Spring Fling 2013 Saturday June 1st

Here are the details for the MBT 2013 Spring Fling taking place on Saturday June 1st. As has been the case the past few years, the bus flea market will take place on the bus museum floor, in front of the buses on display. We will also have MBT and visiting buses on display outside. Most major bus manufacturers are planning to attend with a demonstrator bus. We will provide shuttle service to the MBT annex for those who wish to see the buses parked there. We will have an indoor food court and seating available to enjoy your food & drink. And we will have 2 featured buses on display: the 1936 International and the 1955 Flxible VL-100.

For those who would like to reserve tables to sell their bus related items and memorabillia, tables are $35 each or 2 tables for $60. To reserve a table please call 717-566-7100 X 119. If no answer please leave a message and someone will contact you as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you at Spring Fling!!

Additional Storage Building For The Museum

Some great news to share. Thanks to MBT Board member Ralph Fetrow, through his connections in the Hershey area we have located an additional storage facility to allow for all of our buses to be parked under cover. This large (35 feet by 300 feet) garage is owned by the Hershey Trust Company and is located in Derry Township, 2 miles south of Hershey. The MBT board was looking for a rental property that had more storage space than we needed, to allow us to sublet storage, this facility meets that criteria. By subletting storage space, the museum will benefit financially as this will help with lease payments. Thank You to Ralph Fetrow for his efforts in successfully finding this additional storage space.
