Blog On Tour ~ Stoughton Bus

Saturday saw a visit to the Evergreen Air Museum at McMinnville in Oregon and surprisingly an old bus was on display

During the 1920s and 1930s the Stoughton Cab & Bus Company of Stoughton, Wisconsin designed and manufactured buses exclusively for Chevrolet. The bus, thought to provide a new influence on the progress of transportation, was powered  by a Waukesha four cylinder engine and was capable of an amazing top speed of 30 miles per hour!

Badger Bus Line, the first company to operate a passenger service between Madison and Milwaukee in Wisconsin, used the Stoughton Bus for its services. The coach bus also saw service with country clubs, hotels, schools and also in connection with railroad and aviation travel.
