An Entertaining & Informative Vintage Automobile Internet Magazine

* Updated * The Woodstock, Vermont Electric bus

*Update * According to the weekly newspaper published in Woodstock (the Vermont Standard), Arthur Wilder (manager of the Woodstock Inn) and Wilfred Smith went to Boston in May, 1913 and saw this vehicle displayed at the Mechanical Building, and subsequently acquired it. The paper states that it was made by General Motors Truck Co.

I hope one of your viewers will help identify this vehicle. This electric bus was owned and operated by the Woodstock (VT) Inn, to shuttle guests between the inn, built in 1895 on the green in the heart of the village, and the railroad station located at the east end of town. I have researched motor vehicle records from the teens when this was operated, and while I found the vehicle listed, no manufacturer was listed for it. The photo comes courtesy of the Woodstock Historical Society (they have identified the driver as Mr. Goodrow). The inn was torn down in 1969.
