Thanks again to Clive for the unusual Lone Star Bus paint schemes.

I was recently able to acquire the Green OOO RF Bus with Yellow "GREEN LINE"
The Green Paint has some chipping, but a great find for me. Came from a U.S. seller.

On a unrelated note: Every time I review my collection, I find another variation of Body, Chassis, Trucks or Wheels. It seems to never end!

That's what has kept me collecting for so many Years, finding endless variations on so many models I had put into my collection.
