Nice video. As the owner of an early ('79) B7100, it's interesting to see how many little differences there are between mine and these later hydro 7100s. The diff lock relocation makes sense given the HST pedal takes up all of the right floorboard, but I'm interested even in the throttle...on mine, pulling it towards the operator increases engine speed while throwing it away does the opposite. Shut-off is also accomplished by a yellow "trigger" beneath the dash; pull it and it shuts off fuel. Vive les differences!
What routes does this operate on? I need to go ride it one of these days...
This yard used to be Warhoops...if that doesn't mean anything to you, go look and see what stuff Joe Bortz found in here 30 years ago or so.
WORTHLESS video. Why would you overdub the noise of the biggest, rarest Detroit Diesel ever made with music? FAIL.
Trains, planes, automobiles, trucks, tractors, etc.
If it has wheels, there's a good chance I'm interested -- if not obsessed -- with it. The more obscure the transportation topic, the more interested I am. Case in point: click here.
Own two small Honda motorbikes, one of which exists entirely in parts. Worked in Chrysler's Archives in high school. Wrote a book about the GM RTS transit bus.
