Re: Yemassee Junction photos was Fruit Growers reefer

This is where decal paper for your printer of choice and some computer time to find the required images pays off. A friend who is a bus modeler does this all the time to get the correct lettering for his units; both 1/87 and 1/4 scale.  Bill, a man my size [ 6'-2"  + 300# ] has no business wearing jodhs out of the house. I'll stick to the kahkis and jeans.
Most of us have seen the flat car load photo of several buses and thought it would make a great model. The images are out there to be found; I'm still searching for the right color photo to make some of my own printout decals. Anyone else tried this for flat car loads?

I have a "Pirate Models" kit of an even earlier Mack bus and similarly am frustrated by the lack of Greyhound decals. Maybe this is something Microscale could be influenced to offer.

The Life photographer for these was one of their most famous who also helped pioneer the use of the 35mm camera in photojournalism.

To show our respects to this era, maybe we could all agree to wear jodhpurs to future prototype gatherings. This would be a very sharp look when combined w/Hawaiian shirts.

Risking Jail!

I LOVE that bus, and the uniformed driver in his boots and jodhpurs!
The bus is (or was) available in resin in HO, but sadly, I'm not
aware of any decals. I have one that I want to paint like this and
use as a flat car load.
