We are privileged to have a very special bus in our collection–one that gets a lot of attention on the floor–that is the 1971 B&C GOLDEN EAGLE 05 5410 Continental Panhandle Lines 42303. As you can see from the map above–it went from NY to LA through Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, OK City, Amarillo, Albuquerque, Flagstaff and then onto LA (see the other stops and connections in between). The Five-Star ticket for this ride included: Hostess aboard; reserved seat; snacks and beverages. The brochure stated the hostess “will bring you snacks, magazines or pillows; help you adjust your seat and give you the time, temperature and show you points of interest…just above the cars at scenery level…all the way.” Sounds pretty luxurious, doesn’t it?

The brochure also notes “plush, plump, adjustable seats keep you comfortable throughout any trip…the Golden Eagle is climate controlled for any season with plenty of fresh, clean air. You’ll find a completely equipped rest room aboard that features a well-lighted make-up mirror to help you arrive as crisp, clean and comfortable as you were when you stepped aboard.” Too bad they discontinued these
