The model - The second of ABC's Leyland Short Fleetlines 'SF' was released on 13th May 2000, and features SF29 with coach livery. The model features poseable wheels with opening side and rear engine covers. Wing mirrors are provided for the owner to fit.

The bus - in 1978 China Motor Bus announced that the final 30 chassis of an order of 70 Long Fleetlines had been changed to 31ft vehicles. Alexander bodies similar to those fitted to the LF class were used, the most recognisable difference being the SF had a half width rearmost nearside window whilst the LF had a full width. This would allow them to be used on routes 15 to The Peak and 6 to Stanley, where road conditions required shorter vehicles. SF29 entered service on 26th March 1980 and was withdrawn in October 1999, having been transferred to New World First Bus in September 1998.
