Marshalls have always been cheap and nasty buses with terrible rattles.
I remember when MTL first bought them, they were EVEN WORST than they are now! Apparently, Arriva discovered that the bench seats shook too much, so they fitted a metal bracket between the seat and body. This has had limited success though, because they still shake, rattle and roll excessively.

By the way, repaired Interurban fire victim 7674 (V674 DVU) is out on route 61 today.
Today really could be the last time you get to ride an ex-MTL bus that's still in service with Arriva.

I agree, the marshalls have always been horrible things, they were really the last throw of the dice for MTL and probably reflect the state of affairs at MTL towards the end.
