Lehigh Valley Depot at Rushville, N.Y. with an interesting wagon

According to "Horse-Drawn Commercial Vehicles" by Don H. Berkebile, this style vehicle is known as a wagonette-omnibus. It was very popular with railroads and hotels:

"By the end of the nineteenth century, as it came to be considered more practical for the purpose, the wagonette had nearly supplanted the hotel coach."

Thanks Steve!
