Good footage of vehicles in this clip, but being a PR puff piece 2 things stand out for me: 1) Peddling the 'us' versus 'them' (QR) in those days instead of working together when the original MTA was still in existence (yes I remember the political situation of the day) & 2) the massive patronage drop experienced following the tramway abandonment not even mentioned. CityXpress was only a brief blip in the trend during the 80's atleast (82 games & Expo 88 aside).
