The model - The third release of the Leyland Fleetline/BACo casting is to be released on 27th June 2015, almost ten years after its last release.   

The bus - KMB's third and final order for Daimler (Leyland) Fleetlines (150 buses) differed from the previous two orders, in that British Aluminium Company (BACo) bodywork was specified. The BACo bodywork was certainly very different from any other body type, being of a very angular design. This angular design was even applied to the wheelarches! A predominantly red livery was applied from new which tended to improve the appearance of the design. One feature akin to the latest low floor buses was the use of a straight staircase. 

D964 entered service in 26th August 1977 and was withdrawn in July 1991.
