The Thomas C2 is somewhat reminiscent of the late 40’s Reo Safety school bus which was the bus on which I rode to school during the elementary school years.

Very nice ! This ubiquitous yellow school bus was probably the most-ridden vehicle in the world !

This  50th replica of a circa 1966 Gillig, Cummins underfloor six cylinder diesel engine school bus was created from a Corgi GM "old look" transit bus.  A replica of one of the fleet of buses used by my high school to replace 25 year old worn out gasoline rear engined Crowns.
