Its all here, all shots were taken IN SERVICE (NO RESTORATION SHOTS INCLUDED HERE) and cover all paint schemes including Fruit Salad, Two-Tone Greens, Spearmint's, RTD Chrome Yellow's, RTD Burglar's, RTD Casper's, RTD Airport Express "Cheese Wedges", RTD "Dick face" repaints, RTD Tri-Stripes, RTD and MTA Two-Stripe variations, MTA Yellowjackets, and if that isn't enough a few surprises.
All shots are very clear documentary style 3/4 or flat views.
Scans are Hi-Res usually 1MB or higher each so you can study the details, decals and literally see right into the buses and backgrounds.
If you have been wanting to start a collection of RTD-MTA material this is it, the best collection scanned to a CD for your home enjoyment as it is all here. All 30+ years of my slide taking/collecting.
All scans are from slides I have taken or picked up over the years and are not intended to be re-used or given out to the internet. The burned in Trikora Trading Co. is just for the auction only and will not be on the CD images.
For a serious collector and historian this will be hours, if not days worth of amazing Los Angeles transit material most people have only dreamed to see. As almost anyone knows my collection covers the best and after years of holding onto it in my archives I have opened my vault to serious bidders who intend to pay.
Do not bid if you want to play games. I am not interested in the voices in your head that told you to bid and not pay, your menstrual pains preventing you paying, or an alien abduction that got you while you were waiting to pay.
Item ships Priority mail with Delivery Confirmation. If you buy multiple CD's from my I will combine shipping into one, just give me a heads up after the auction so I can invoice you accordingly.
Email with questions, the auction holds a few samples.
