MD60 returns to the workshop

London Metropolitan MD60 returned to the main BusWorks workshop yesterday for work to resume on this vehicle's major structural rebuild and restoration. Already, all the framework from the lower deck window level has been completely replaced on both sides of the bus with new steel framing, after it was discovered that the lower deck structure was completely corroded. Some upper deck sections and the rear were also replaced but there remain some upper deck and front end sections to rebuild before stress panelling can be completed and a complete repanel can commence.
Ensignbus is now funding the completion of this project and I'm sure many enthusiasts will eagerly await the opportunity to ride upon one of these vehicles again.
