MCW Metroliner. A coach-ride into history.

Here's another example of a brochure that has outlived 99% of the vehicles it set out to promote. 

Once upon a time,  when Britain was an industrial nation,  it had TWO manufacturers of double-deck luxury coaches. There was Plaxton's of Scarborough,  and MCW of Birmingham. The latter built the Metroliner range of single and double-decker coaches.

Never seen one? Nah, chances are that you won't. Those that weren't converted into open-top sightseeing buses in London will have long dissolved by now. 

Drop me a line if you've got one parked outside right now.
