    This bus was made by Freeport Toys & Manuf of Freeport Ill. It is made of a thick cast aluminum and appears to be a copy of the old cast iron Arcade bus. I have seen these at shows for sale as Arcade buses. The decals are worn off this one but the paint is still pretty nice. It measures just under 8- 3/4 inches long.

      I have the same bus in my collection. Mine is marked inside on one side The Realistic Toy Co. And on the other side Freeport Ill. made in the USA. Don't see that much any more.

      Thanks for reply. I have very few bus stories. I don't get much off ebay anymore and haven't sold on there in a few years. I do use the completed listing a lot checking on prices. there is way more than a thousand records at the antique mall so picking one to check on would not be practical with my limited experience.

      Thanks Nicefice, SEAN68, toytyme, rocker-sd,
