||The museums Flxible
Visicoach was originally delivered new in 1955 to the Utah National Parks Company as #50.
The popular Flxible "Clippers" were used wherever a smaller capacity coach was
required. They were well suited for traversing the scenic, winding roads found in many
parks and wilderness areas and most National parks operated them. Later, #50 was acquired
by to Glacier National Park Transportation Inc. where it ran as their #77 along with two
other Flxibles (#75-76) until 1987. Avid bus enthusiast and past PBM President, Richard
Twinning, acquired the coach to add to his historic bus collection. In 1996 the #77 was
donated along with the five other buses from Richards collection to the PBM. In need
of mechanical attention, the PBM has since restored the bus to operating condition. The
coach is displayed frequently at events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
