Bristol MW / ECW Bus
MW58 & MW59
The Bristol MW (Medium Weight) replaced the LS model in 1957.

In shape and size the two were completely interchangeable but with a separate chassis and therefore heavier.

Bristol ECW - MW Bus - 2nd Series - MW59

The MW bus had a shallower windscreen divided horizontally with the upper part raked back. The two leaf entrance door was contoured to fit the new front. A small grille was a distinguishing feature on the centre front (some later models were fitted with a high grille for the Cave-Brown-Cave heating system). The initial examples had an upright back but this was disliked and soon changed to one similar to the LS bus.

The four kit series includes the MW58 with provision for 3 part destination screens front and rear. The MW59 with 2 part destination screens front only and larger rear windows. The same body shells are used for the DP versions but with coach seats

MW59DP The kit comprises
  • One piece resin body.
  • One piece resin seating unit and chassis.
  • Metal base plate
  • Steering wheel and column
  • Push fit composite rubber wheel set with axles
  • Silver printed windscreen and glazing set.
  • Front grille and wing transfer
In identifying a particular bus to model, photographs are essential as batches and companies had many variants.

Some examples of the series 2 kit as modelled were supplied to the following companies; Bristol Omnibus Co, Durham Distinct Services, Crosville, Cumberland, Eastern Counties, Eastern National, Hants & Dorset, Lincolnshire, Red & White, Southern National, Thames Valley, United, United Counties, Western National, West Yorkshire.
