The photo looks more like circa 1960 than 1976.

It might have been an introductory tour of the "Road and Rail" operations which were terminated fairly quickly, if I recall.

Thanks LB... The date really should be c.1960+ based on the 1960 Pontiac Catalina across the street in front of the late 50's Chevy.

The date I have for the first run is April 7, 1962 (see first day ticket sold in Jamaica that day). Brad Phillips
