|The model -
this model was announced on 18th March 2003, and was released in
Hong Kong a week later. I believe the destination should read Cleverly
St. and not Cleverley St.
- LF9 was one of the first batch of 30 Daimler Fleetlines with Metal Sections
bodywork, which entered service between January and May 1974. They were
commonly known as 'Jumbos'. When new, these buses were fitted with a small
destination screen and single track route number blind. LF9 carries the
'Jump on a Jumbo' slogan, and an experimental CMB logo. LF9 was withdrawn
in June 1992 and later scrapped.
