Before the Transit Authority tried those articulated buses on the streets of New York, Surface Transportation tried two different Fageol/Twin Coach model articulated buses back in the 1930s.

The first was the 4 axle, 14 ton diesel electric Super-Twin in 1938.

The third demo built was 3 axles with an underfloor diesel engine

These two operated for Surface Transportation.

(A trolley coach version was also built but sold to Baltimore.)
