Urban Gardening on Wheels

During a short visit in Switzerland, the editor explored the neighborhoods of his former hometown he frequented most, years ago. In the courtyard of the long retired tram- and busdepot, he discovered this old citybus now used as greenhouse to grow vegetables- and flowers. Urban Gardening on wheels. Apart from this old vehicle, the entire yard is a myriad of small flower- and vegetable beds, either in old supermarket trolleys or pallet frames- or both.

Back in time, those heavy, sluggish, slow and rigid busses were the main transport vehicles to the city. Regular tanks compared to modern high tech busses of today. But even if they were believed forgotten, they’re still used for a purpose – even if this is urban gardening. In the workshops nearby there were another two busses, being restored for veteran excursions and museums.
Until now, the editor didn’t know that these cast iron monsters were designed and built in Switzerland during the 1960’s: FBW AB 157.
