Buses without front and rear axles are played out. (Not buyin that?) Absolutely incredible find and recovery. Looks like you had a few cumulative years experience. Just goes to show, not all buried buses come out the same.

Why isn't it just dissolved where it was buried?

Good Question.... one of those 'unsolved mysteries'... perhaps Aliens buried it. I guarantee it surprised all of us too....

Several factors. Dirt and moisture composition is key. Being buried sometimes is a good thing.
