Some records show this bus as having been re-registered WAG8458 on 20 Feb 1964. However, this cannot refer to the original MTT (41) ex-Metro (41) as it had ceased to exist in its original form by that date. MTT (40) ex-Metro (40) had received MTT (41)`s body in April 1963 and re-entered service as MTT (41). The reference to WAG8458 must therefore apply to the 2nd MTT (41) which was ex-MTT (40) ex-Metro (40). Presumably when the body was transferred, the fleet no was left as (41).
