Description

An innovator in the bus business, Fageol was the first company to build a bus from the ground up, and it was called the Safety Coach. Later in 1927 the Fageol brothers sold out and began Twin Coach. They then built the Model 40 Twin Coach - a twin engine city bus that began the city bus business. This bus operated for up to 20 years in many cities - a rarity at the time. In 1960 Twin Coach was bought by Flxible. Period photos, with detailed captions, tell the story of these buses. This is a book bus enthusiasts won't want to miss.
