The most significant buyer was First London, purchasing more than 400 on the Dart SLF chassis for its Centrewest, Capital and London Buslines fleets. Many have been cascaded to other FirstGroup subsidiaries, across large parts of the UK. MTL purchased 76 for their London operations - all of which passed to Metroline in 1998 - as well as 75 for their Merseyside fleet. Other notable customers were London Central, Halton Transport, Warrington Borough Transport and Isle of Man Transport.
When Marshall was closed in 2002, MCV bought the design of the Capital body and production continued. MCV built only five Capital bodies on Dart SLFs for Warrington Borough Transport before TransBus ceased supplying Dart SLF chassis to MCV for body assembly.
The successor of the Marshall Capital body is the MCV Stirling.
