Although I’m not sure of the exact date 0.680 production ceased, certainly WY’s Leyland National 2s delivered between 1980-1982 with 0.680 (L11) engines, which had many parts in common with the turbocharged TL11 engines fitted to Tiger TRC coaches, again simply had visual smoke checks based on "t’ rack of t’ eye" techniques, rather than anything more technical. 03/08/17 MCW Metrobus I was wondering where I could find the technical drawings for the MCW Metrobus, I am doing a 3D project and wanted to bring this bus back to life so to speak for a bus simulator.I have a mid 1970’s Nottinghamshire CC/Lincolnshire Road Car timetable for all Newark bus services, which identifies the relevant routes as East Notts, Lincolnshire or shared as appropriate.As a nod to the NBC Market Analysis project which was not applied in Notts., buses latterly gained local identity branding of Cavalier. 07/09/17 ABC Bus Services I just wondered if anyone has any information about ABC Bus Services, a company which operated from Dunham on Trent, Nottinghamshire, in the 1950s and possibly into the 60s?Proprietors were variously M, F B, and FF Applewhite.There were Applewhite coaches and an Applewhite Garage in Dunham at the time.
