Re: The Story of Midland Red
Peter, just a footnote to the break up of the Midland Red into geographical companies leaving Midland Red Express isolated as a coach only operation. It was relaunched as Midland Red Coaches but as such was not considered a viable unit to stand alone for privatisation or a in a management buyout, to the disappointment of both it's management and employees. As a result it was "merged" with Midland Red West who then later dissolved it. The title Midland Red Coaches subsequently ended up with a former Midland Red employee operating a 'heritage' bus and coach company called "Wheels" in Nuneaton who have adopted the former Midland Red coaching livery of red and black. (www.wheels.co.uk). Lloyd can no doubt shed more light on the fate of Midland Red Coaches whilst under Midland Red West control.
