Night photography: 1930s bus rescued from the Nevada desert

A new addition to the bus museum -- by Joe Reifer

A 1930s bus (left) recently rescued from the Nevada desert sits waiting for restoration at a bus maintenance yard in Northern California. Star trails fill the night sky in this 15 minute long exposure during a full moon.

Update: The bus is a 1937 Twin Coach, model 31 R, delivered new to the Pacific Electric in Los Angeles. It was purchased for the routes in Burbank/Hollywood Hills.

  1. The 1930′s Bus is really something. The front of this Bus reminds me of one that was a bit shorter in length at Pville. Do you recall what the oldest buses were at Pearsonville?

    1. Kinda looks like a smiley face, huh? I’m not sure about the age of the buses in Pearsonville — I’d guess they weren’t as old as this one!
