HISTORY The Bristol MW is a mid-engined single-deck bus or coach chassis of 30' length.  Introduced in 1957, it was delivered new only to members of the Transport Holding Company Ltd (Tilling Motor Services Group, Red & White Group, etc). The body by Eastern Coach Works was  comfortable, solid and robust, and was derived from an earlier body built on the Bristol LS chassis.  This vehicle was delivered new to Eastern National in 1958, and was withdrawn from service in 1970.  It went into preservation ownership in the 1980s, and was acquired by the present ownership in 2004.
