The MBT is pleased to announce we have taken delivery of two buses that have been donated to us by Ralph Ciccone. We now have in our fleet a 1951 Brill that was we understand was originally a school bus in Reading PA and was later converted to a transit bus. We hope to have it restored to it’s original school bus configuration.
Mr. Ciccone also donated a 1952 Beaver, which originally was a demonstrator, then was sold to Holloway Bus Lines in New Jersey. It was later sold to Leonard Lines before being acquired by Mr. Ciccone.
These buses were delivered to us on Thursday. Both of these buses are currently in the museum parking lot along with the buses evacuated from the annex. We’ll have pictures of these buses to share with you soon.
A big thank you to Ralph Ciccone for his donation of these two interesting and rare buses to the MBT.
