Coach 775

1947 GM TDH3207

AMCAP's Coach 775

Coach 775 began its career in transit when purchased in 1947 by the Harmony Short Line. This bus served primarily in the Allegheny Valley of Pittsburgh although occasionally could be found on other parts of the Harmony system.

The bus stayed with Harmony until it went out of business in March of 1961. 775 was then purchased by Community Transit Service who repainted the bus into their colors and added the front chrome strips and GM name plate to the bus. Originally 775 was delivered without those. The bus continued to serve the Allegheny Valley region as it always had.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County acquired the bus in 1964 when it acquired the Community Transit Service. 775 was then repainted as shown in the photo and continued on serving the same area it always had. In 1974, PAT restored 775 and kept the bus as part of it's historic fleet. 775 still occasionally would see service even though it had become one of the oldest buses in the PAT fleet.

Over time, 775 became the last of the historic fleet as PAT disbanded the rest of the collection. 775 was placed inside Harmar Garage and rarely made an appearance during the 80's.

AMCAP acquired 775 in 1991 and it instantly became the focal point of the organization. Currently 775 is being repainted back into the original Harmony Short Lines livery and will make various appearances at community events throughout the area as well as the occasional fan trip.
