this is actually an amphibious bus from the war time. this is a US army retired bus. more copies of these can be seen across many parts of US. I'd seen it in DC, in Philly and in Atlanta.

I know the reply is to an old post but eh, i just saw your thread.

Let me answer that for you-----no issues at all. However, I did feel pretty claustrophobic in certain sections of Borra caves near Araku/ Vizag.

Nice pics @chevelle---we were there at Luray on the same day but did not know that, did we?

+1 to you about claustrophobic part. Actually, when we went, we thought it would be cold as it is below ground level, but after sometime, we felt really warm and removed our jackets. And its quite spacious with enough space to walk around. Also the time when you decide to visit is important to as during weekdays its less crowded.

Yes Vnabhi, we were there at around same time. We may have even crossed each others paths, but that's how it is. Small world as people say. . We didn't go to car museum and caverns museum. So we left early. Took around 2 hours inside and half an hour collecting memento up in the store.

It could be a tour bus. They have something similar in England. Take a look at this link.
