WYTHALL'S Transport Museum will be marking 25 years since the closure of MCW, the major employer also known as Metro-Cammell, which supplied top quality buses and trains all over the world.

As part of a special event on August 24 and 25 more than 20 buses with Metro-Cammell bodies will be on display, there will be a chance to ride some classic buses, and theire is a miniature steam train for youngsters and those who are young at heart.

On August 24 there will also be the chance to see former MCW bus designer John Seale demonstrating traditional draughtsmanship skills when he completes an unfinished drawing of a Birmingham City Transport 1931 Morris.

Malcolm Keeley, a trustee of the museum, said: "Visitors love riding on our classic buses which really make things come alive. They will be pure nostalgia for some, while car users and kids relish the chance to look over the hedges and across the lovely countryside."

The volunteer-run 100-strong collection of buses, coaches, milk floats and bread vans is in Chapel Lane, Wythall.
