Hello,

I can't ID the model of the omnibus double deck of Büssing (1943)

Can you help me ?

Hello Prosper,

Photo from Metzer Zeitung Am Abend april 1942. Legend said : " modernautobusse mit Holzgasantrieb". it's a Doppeldecker in front of the station of Metz during annexation.
I thank it was a Büssing because it was the legend in a thesis upon transports in Alsace Lorraine. Could it be Magirus or an Henschel (this company produced wood gas buses).
Best regards

Georges

Hello Georges,
Yes it possible, but if the picture was token in Metz, it's also possible that the bus was manufactured by a french marque. (Not a Renault bus)
Sorry but I didn't find out.
Regards
Prosper :wink: :wink:

Why not ask in vehicles section of the Forum?

A bit strange it has a door on the left side ? Or perhaps it has two doors at the front (left and right side) ?
Büssing made similar one after the war, it was called Eineinhalbdecker (one and a half decker).
