They were a horrible bus to drive compared to their 0405 bigger brothers. Coupled to an auto transmission, upon taking your foot off the brake at the lights, they would just sit there until they were flogged to get moving. This is, of course, under typical Busways operating conditions. As a country school bus they are probably not too bad a bus.
