Hi guys. It's been awhile since I visited but here is my latest project.

Can anyone provide me with information on this coupling as I cannot find anything on the 'net. Thanks. Rod.

the trailer bus has actually been tried for years, the largest bus in the world was a trailer behind a daycab tractor in Egypt I think built by Thomas built buses back in the 80's, heres some pics. Oh and in Cuba theyre still going strong, all the commuter buses are trailers behind our old tractors.

Ford used Ford-Smith Fifth Wheel couplers until they were sold to Fontane in 1942. Start there maybe.
