All of us at the MBT extend our congratulations to Larry Plachno, editor & publisher of National Bus Trader magazine. The December 2012 issue marks 35 years of continuous publication. Larry continues with the longest tenure as a bus magazine editor and NBT holds the record as the longest running continuously published monthly bus magazine in recent history, a testament to Larry’s ongoing dedication and mission to cover all aspects of the bus industry. A photo taken by Elaine Farrell of snow covered Capital Area Transit 1001 outside the museum on October 29th, 2011 appears on page 40 of this milestone issue. Again, congratulations to Larry and his staff and thank you Larry for your continued support and coverage of the bus industry.
