Rail to Bus Trip = August

Posted by Mr RT on Mon Apr 23 08:11:29 2012

The Transit Museum will run, for the third year, a Arnine subway trip to Rocakway Park to meet their old buses that will give you rides to Riis Park.

Typically they bring a half dozen buses of various vintages so you can have a ride on several throughout the day.

I've done it the past two years & found it very enjoyable.

Did you purposely not post the date?

Well you did get a photo taken of you in the drivers seat.
Too bad work stopped on 617, because you would have got your chance there.

The small staff there that was "restoring" old buses was cut as a cost saving measure, so the several buses that they had begun work on has stopped. This includes 617, a couple of Yellow Coaches, & a couple of double deckers.
