We have restored a 1959 GM TDH5301 transit coach which once served for the Cleveland Transit System.  This coach is the oldest known preserved coach of the GM New Look series, produced from 1959 through 1977 in the United States, and was in the second order of this then new design.  Coach 641, shown above, along with several other operating coaches are our "Mobile Ambassadors" that make rounds to various community events and other special activities.

In addition to our physical bus collection, our organization is a repository of information relating to the various Ohio transit systems and major bus manufacturers of the past.  Our goal is to preserve the history of public transit in Ohio which includes pictures, schedules, maps, reports, books and numerous other items relating to Ohio transit systems and their equipment as well as information regarding bus manufacturers.

You are welcome to explore our "garage on the net" to learn more about our organization and about preserving Ohio's public transit heritage.  A site only search engine will help speed your search for specific information. Currently we have the complete GM Old Look, GM New Look, GM/TMC RTS. Flxible Transit, AM General, Twin Coach and Beaver Coach production lists posted as well as a small but growing section of articles regarding Ohio's public transit history.

Currently we are unable to have visitors as our collection is scattered around various locations to keep them safe. You may view the collection on-line and e-mail any questions you have to us regarding the collection.
