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. SF 8 entered service in November 1979.
