Bristol ECW MW - Dual Purpose Coach - MW 60
The Bristol MW (Medium Weight) replaced the LS model in 1957. In shape and size the two were interchangeable but with a separate chassis and therefore heavier.

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 kit is based on a Dual Purpose version of the 2nd series which featured the smaller 2 part destination screens allowing for larger rear windows and includes coach seats. Additional side mouldings are detailed which varies slightly among operators.
