I came across some pics on the net of a couple Thomas FS65's with what seemed to be C2 doors instead of the original Thomas doors. Was this a stock option on the later models? Or was it an aftermarket thing that was modified in? I'll post the pics in a few.

That was a rare option (at least here). It was supposed to be the standard door starting around 2002, but that never came to be for some reason.

The crazy thing about that photo is that it has a manual door!

Yeah sure thought it was weird with the manual door, but I have to say it looks mighty nice. I wonder if you could have them retrofitted onto a bus with standard thomas doors.

alot of our buses here have that option with the air door. Supposed to give better visability.

Mr. Hardy, you think you could get us a better picture of them? Mine isn't at the best angle.
