THE HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE WEST MIDLANDS (WMPTE)
MCW METROBUSES CAN BE FOUND ON WIKIPEDIA
MCW IS THE ABBREVIATION FOR METRO CAMMELL WEYMANN
The MCW Metrobus is a model manufactured by (MCW) between 1977 and 1989
with over 4,000 examples built. The original MkI model was superseded by the MkII model (which had a symmetrical windscreen) in 1981
The and its successor
also purchased significant numbers of Metrobuses (over 1,100)
both MkI and MkII examples. These included five prototype vehicles (allocated to depot near the MCW factory so they could see the vehicles performance in service) and 50 dual-purpose Metrobuses with high-back seats
purchased in 1986. Many of these buses were converted to normal seated buses and continued in service until November 2008. They were mainly used on limited-stop services. Fourteen were delivered for route 65 (branded)
which was the first guided bus system in UK
although the experiment only lasted a couple of years. All of the 14 guided buses were converted for conventional use
In early 1995 of were contracted to overhaul all of West Midland Travel's Metrobus fleet. This was the largest used bus overhaul programme in Europe at the time and Marshalls set up a dedicated business division and staff to handle it. Many unavailable parts had to be sourced and made to original patterns by the Marshall procurement team. A production line was established in one of Marshall's aircraft hangars and anything up to 30 Metrobuses could be found in work at some stage along the line. Duration of refurbishment of each bus was usually 2-3 per week. No powerline items were included with the result that original engines were simply put back in the overhauled buses as they were. This had the effect that as the vehicles were driven from the West Midlands to Marshalls at Cambridge and driven back once completed
they frequently broke down. Over 600 mainly MkII metrobuses were overhauled and the contract ended abruptly in 1999 due to lack of confidence in Marshall Bus over delays with WMT orders for their new single deck buses. As a result of the unique experience gained by Marshall Bus on the Metrobus programme
they won a similar contract to overhaul starting in 1999
The last public service ran the 1 service from Birmingham Town Hall to Acocks Green Village
arriving back at Acocks Green Garage at 15:25 on 24 July 2010 and was bus 2903 C903FON. A Metrobus Farewell event was held at Acocks Green on that day and all three of the last Metrobuses were operated
these were 2832
C903FON & E988VUK). All cash fares taken on the day were donated to Cancer Research UK
