The model - Released in October 2001 is this Short Fleetline, carrying all-over advertising for Marché Restaurant. Unfortunately, like the other recently released Fleetline in Fuji Film decals, this not only has an error in the registration number, but also in the spelling of the destination!! (See photograph below)

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.
