early 1940s trolley bus, Seattle, Washington

Seen in 1970 is an early 1940s Twin Coach trolley bus in service in Seattle, a city that bought 177 of them between 1940 and 1943. The Twin Coach company lasted from 1927 to 1955, based in Kent, Ohio. In 1955 the bus manufacturing operations were sold to Flxible which was also based in Ohio. For a while Flxible used the Twin Coach name along with its own and some buses carried front name plates that gave both names and combined the companies' two logos into one. By 1963 the use of the Twin Coach name on buses had been discontinued.
