I ran through Soda Springs, Idaho last week and took a moment to get some photos of the Bus located in the city park.















Took a shot of the info plaque there showing a vintage pic of the Conda Mine (phosphate mining) located to the north of Soda Springs a few miles.

Hi Dwayne

Great bus photos !

That mine is one of the 'crazyest' operations I've seen.

Guess it's all about gravity.

All the best.

Cheers.

Si.

Hey Dwayne,

Looking at the 5th picture down, I noticed that it looks like the from trucks don't swivel. Or do they? Can you shed any light on that?

Bernd, they don't swivel. Spring hangers are rigidly mounted to the frame.

Thanks Dwayne. Wonder how they went around sharp curves? Going to have to try that out on a model to see if it work.

Found this short video of similarly designed units running somewhere in Florida in the 1920s.
