Midland Red Daimler Fleetline returned to running condition
A Midland Red Daimler Fleetline has returned from First Worcester, successor to Midland Red West. First Worcester has worked in partnership with Transport Museum Wythall to help return 6015 to Class 6 running condition.
For the past four years, the engineering team at the operator has been undertaking significant structural repairs to body bearers, vertical pillars and the main crossmember under the engine and transmission. A thorough inspection of the electrics has also resulted in considerable replacement of wiring and has included overhaul of the door operating mechanism.
The vehicle has now been transformed into a fully-functional vehicle in time for the museum’s Midland Red Anniversary event on 3 October.
