  1. Two interesting finds that made me think of @JR 500系 🙂 First, one bus towing another. As the one and only comment on the video says, never saw that before. What was meant to be a simple Google Map inquiry became a minor cartological rabbit hole, I believe the camera man is just about standing on the border between the cities of Osakasayama and Tondabayashi. https://www.google.com/maps/@34.4990868,135.5602266,21z?hl=en Next, down on Aichi's Chita peninsula, there's apparently an organization called the Aomi Truck and Bus Preservation Society. They have a twitter account here https://twitter.com/aomitruckbusps with some pics of a sweet looking Toyota dump truck, and this beast, a Hino RE121. Actually there was another video of them driving it around which has mysteriously disappeared. Hmmm. I believe these are from the very early 80s but I'm not sure, maybe JR 500 can fill us in 🙂
  2. JR500, you need this: https://twitter.com/R_esculenta/status/668710688739557377 According to the tweet, he built them himself. Excellent work. I think the event was the Surutto Kansai Bus Matsuri: http://www.surutto.com/bus/ https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%B9%E3%83%AB%E3%83%83%E3%81%A8KANSAI%E3%83%90%E3%82%B9%E3%81%BE%E3%81%A4%E3%82%8A Looks like it's held mid- to late-September every year, with 27 companies participating in 2015. Attendance isn't indicated, but it's been significant for previous years. How is it that a bus festival can draw 30,000 people? What makes Japan a society that's not just willing to use public transit, but is in some ways enthusiastic about it?

    miyakoji's bus corner!

    Possibly some ideas for layouts. All Kanto, but good nonetheless... Odakyu Bus - Inagi City iBus, nice autumn/winter afternoon in western Tokyo-to; by puku0987 Tokyu Bus - Shibuya to Shibuya, Daikanyama circuit, I think this is the rich part of town; by puku0987 Tokyo Metropolitan Bus route ume70, longest route in Tokyo-to by puku0987 by keiseibusN126 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez0D9vpldSk
