A Bit of Guidance
Alan, Northampton correspondent, was able to snap this lovely beast ...
Fourteen MCW Metrobus Mark II buses were acquired and fitted with guide wheels, which ran along the guideway's concrete edges. The vehicles were painted in a distinct livery, unique to Tracline 65, being silver with black and red (orange? - fbb) detailing. Operation began in 1984 and ended in 1987. One of them, fleet number 8110, is preserved at Aston Manor Road Transport Museum.
Midland Metro Makes it on Monday!
