And following a number of requests from the public about purchasing the Metro branded face coverings which Nexus employees wear as part of their uniform, face coverings have been added to the range.

Head of Marketing, Communication and Information at Nexus, Kerry Leng, said: “We had a lot of support for our 40th anniversary celebrations last year, even though we couldn’t do everything we wanted to due to the pandemic.

"The old photographs are always popular and seeing our heritage train out on the network is a real highlight for some of our customers.

We’re delighted that we can now offer Metro customers and fans the opportunity to own a small piece of Metro memorabilia. Everything is affordably priced, great quality, and of course, features our iconic brand.”

Old pictures have been among the most popular items

Stocks are limited, and Metro bosses are asking customers what other items they would like to see for sale, if the range was to be extended further.
