|Sideeffects of Pilota
The CEO of GAIA (right) and the mayor of Bergen inaugurated
the brand new MANbuses 15th of june 2003. Pilota.fm was initiated

|Tbuswidows of Nigeria
This is a Tbus from the collection of the wife of the former
Nigerian minister Martins Williams - famous for his email-business-proposals.
|Tbeauty into Tmonster
The sound of tubas could be heard eminating from the inside,
a witness tells the Trollopedia. The inauguration of several
new Tbuses in Salzburg 1944 (left) was unfortunately put into
nazi clothing. The sound and banners made the humble Tbeauty
into a Tmonster.
|Czeck silent revolution
A silent but electric revolution took place in Bergen this
summer. During the trollofon in May, Czeck experts arrived
in town. From the top of their unique trolleylift-truck they
renewed the Tbuslines and made them ready for the six new
tbuses coming to Bergen.
|Tbus oder Obus
Tbuses in Germany are called Obus. This drei-achs Obus is

At the factory called the lady with the red telephone. Extracts
of her memoirs has been made available to the trollopedia.
|This particular Tbus (left) ran thirty years ago, along
the route roaming the high peaks around Salzburg, Austria.
The passengers could see a wildlife unsurpassed by any other
line in the world. Sometimes they could even spot eagles.
And the driver had a knife in case of a bear attack.

|Honnecker and his Tbus
This sixwheel-tbus model (below) was found in the home of
the former DDR-primeminister Honnecker. Dictator by day -
he paid interest to other aspects of life at home. A small
collection was also found in his partei-office.
The world is full of eternal parking lots. Some of them for
Tbuses only. This photo is from the 'Schrottplatz Reichenbach
a.d. Fils' in Germany. Any photos or input about similar spots,
is of highest interest for pilota.
|A labourial life: mr. Kynakh
The very first director of the small tbusfactory OdaObus in
Odessa - mr. Kynakh. His labourial life was filled with challenges
few other in his seat have experienced. The trollopedia will
therefore make note of his life.
