The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. July 2011.

Hi everyone!
Welcome aboard the "Bus Day" edition of Eddie's Railfan Page.

I grew up in the city of Chicago Illinois USA during the 1960's and 70's era.

One of My favorite periods of the 1970's, was the American Bi Centenial celebration of 1976.

It seemed like every transporation company back then, painted everything from buses, railroad locomotives and semi trucks, in to their own special commemorative American Bi Centenial patriotic color schemes.

I just had to have one of these back in the 1990's, for use on My small H.O Scale electric streetcar layout wich was set in the early to mid 1970's era.

Seen here is an American Precision Scale Models Company H.O Scale General Motors 1950's era old look GM TDH series 40 foot transit bus, wich I custom painted to look like a city transit bus painted up in a patriotic American Bi Centenial color scheme.
