It was very slow off the line - maximum of about 20-MPH up every incline. It had poor suspension (a problem with most Marshalls), which resulted in many rattles on-board. Heaters on-board weren't functioning properly, either, which wasn't great in addition with the arctic weather-conditions...! Significant or not, 7675 isn't a passenger-friendly, roadworthy bus (what a shame!), although the driver did say, "it's not the bus' fault; it's the people who look after it"...

Marshall-bodied Darts have a large glass area, and this means any interior heat rapidly dissipates through the glass. This is another reason why I don't like them.

The best Darts for interior heating were the East Lancs step-Darts at Bootle 1217 (M217 AKB) to 1264 (N264 CKA).
Say what you like about their dodgy, ugly bodies, their small windows kept the heat trapped in. I admired them for this reason (although not much else)Wink
