Restored Yellowstone Coach

Six-Horse "Tally Ho" Yellowstone Observation Coach, Yellowstone Park Transportation Company manufactured by the Abbot-Downing Company of Concord, New Hampshire. This stagecoach features four interior forward-facing seats and one exterior rear seat. This vehicle would have also featured seats on the roof, but none survive on this Tally-Ho coach. The passenger compartment is secured to the undercarriage by original style leather thorough braces.The Yellowstone Park Transportation Company's roots date back to it's association with the Northern Pacific Railroad. In 1883 a stage line was created which ran from the Northern Pacific terminal in Cinnabar, Montana (later relocated at Gardiner, Montana) to and through Yellowstone Park. By 1886, the company had a fleet of sightseeing vehicles, which were painted bright yellow. The larger six-horse "Tally-Ho" stagecoaches transported visitors from the train depot to the hotel at Mammoth Hot Springs. Information taken from http://www.nps.gov.
