Living 10 miles away we go by the old plant often.
Yes the grass has been cut,hedges trimmed,debris removed,
overall it appears to be much better than it was.
There also has been several cars parked in front of building
numerious times lately. Gossip as to what's going on is just that
nothing more. It's just another closed down manufacturing plant,
maybe something will happen maybe it won't.
Please I don't mean to be a killjoy, just be realistic, the Luce family no longer ownes it,they had the Vision,dream and loved the Wanderlodge.
The Wanderlodge name was sold at auction,thats a good thing thanks Steve. Most all former employees have s c a t t e r e d maybe never to
rejoin to build coaches. As more time goes by it will be even more difficult to start back up it'll be a long journey to return to the level of quality being built when it shut down.

Default TATSA !!

A new sign went up today.
TATSA Part of the International Plaza Group. They will be making/assembling a transit bus from Argentina.
They may later open the old campground if they decide to do service but there are no plans and that is naturally low priority.
Not competitive to Blue Bird (yellow) and will not be close to the design failings of the 451LXi shown here (note the enhancements over the 450)
