Ah, okay...One company used out west is Rentzenberger (I'm probably spelling it wrong).

Renzenberger and PTI are two of the bigger players in this business. All I ever see for them in my area is vans; I don't know what the "clown car" term refers to.

The term "clown car" is a nickname for a minivan!Nothing quite like a 250mile,5hr ride in the fetal position.

Railcrew express uses different sized vans depending on how many crews they have to haul for that trip. PTI is the only time I've ever seen a mini-van

Just to set the record straight; Renzenberger out here in the wild, wild west,
uses Ford Expeditions and Chevy Suburbans, with the occasional Chevy box van.

Those minivans aren't allowed in the division I work in, only GMC Savanna (Chevy Express), and Expeditions are allowed. I hate both, but if I had to pick, I'd take the van, as it'd stand up a lot better in a collision.

I work for Railcrew Xpress. They use full sized vans and expeditions. At my particular hub we use full size ford vans. although I have been told Ford has quit making vans so I wonder what new transportation will be.

I wonder if the weird looking Nissans(?) will make it into crew service? They have a fugly front end but look like a E-Ford from the front doors back on the outside.
