Developped in the late 1970s as a wholly-British competitor to British Leyland’s Titan, the Metrobus immediately gained success nationwide. Its fortunes would increase on the back of Leyland’s troubles with its own Titan, and by the end of production in 1986 London Transport had 1,440 vehicles in service. The following year would see the Metrobus become the most numerous single bus type in the capital, a distinction it would retain for over a decade.
This bright new volume examines the life and times of a key player in London Transport history. It is certain to be extremely popular with all enthusiasts of London Transport, as well as any modellers keen to recreate this important type.
