In 1961, PD-4104's were the most prevalent type. But the new 4106 was rapidly joining the fleet as well. And of course, on the thru expresses to northern points, the Scenicruiser's ruled. There were probably still some older 4103's and maybe even some old Silversides, not sure.

Tamiami Trailways also had a terminal of their own in Fort Lauderdale, and also operated mostly GM's. Eagles had not yet been adapted by most eastern Trailway's carrier's, but there might have been some VistaLiner's on pool trips...not sure on that one. Could have been some ACF's still around, as well.

traildriver:

You're the man......thank you! Wink

Just recalled a brief scene in "Where The Boys Are", near the end of the film, where Dolores Hart tells Yvette Mimeux (referring to their trip back north):

"Hey, we'll take the bus together. We'll have a great trip, you wait and see!"

The following is from: TRAILWAYS BUSES" (William A. Luke:

"......Tamiami Trail Tours began in 1924, but discontinued as an operating company in the early 1930's......."

".......it came back in 1935 with routes mainly on Florida's west coast. By 1971, it had routes through most of Florida, and also, some service in Georgia as far as Atlanta........"

".......Tamiami became a Trailways company in 1940. In 1962, Tamiami Trailways began adding GM PD-4106 buses to its fleet......"
