The 1976 era commemorative American Bicentenial transit bus, stops to let a Santa Fe auto parts train go through.

I took this photograph last week Wednsday night, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club, located at 255 Augusta Street in Oak Park Illinois.
The 1970's era is alive and well today.....at least in 1/87th  H.O  Scale anyway.
In a scene out of the mid 1970's, an American Precision Scale Models Company H.O Scale model of a 1950's era General Motors pre 1959 "Old Look" 40 foot transit bus painted in 1976 era American Bicentenial commemorative colors and markings, waits at the railroad crossing in the town of Stocton on the club layout, while an Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad auto parts train passes through.
The locomotive is an Athearn model of a Santa Fe EMD GP 35 roadswitcher diesel electric locomotive, painted in Santa Fe's "Book Ends" or Billboard" color scheme, which was used by the Santa Fe from 1960 until 1972.
