Four Arcade Busses

   I recently wrote about cast iron toys that were similar in size and shape but different in their exterior finish. As I was searching for something to write about I came across a current Bertoia Auctions auction, where there were a group of nice cast iron Arcade busses. The arrangement of the busses on this page are by year, with the later busses starting from top to bottom.

Wherever you may be.
