The metrocar on this 20p is a light railway vehicle, now pretty outdated, built by Metro-Cammel.

All 20 p tokens are 7-sided, aluminium, 1.5 grams and 24.7 mm. The reverse shows the denomination and legend NATIONAL TRANSPORT TOKEN around.

Bermuda, $1, 1988.  Train carriage, 1931, next to small warehouse.  The coin celebrates the reopening in 1988 of the track between the Town of St George and Somerset.
