- this model appeared in Corgi's 'The Original Omnibus Company' July -
December 1997 catalogue and was was issued in December 1997. The casting
is that used by Corgi on previous UK liveried vehicles, with the exception
that an air-conditioned pod is fitted. It is a fairly common, and no difficulty
should be experienced in finding one in the £10-£15 price range.
- this bus is one of a batch of 21 Dennis Darts that were purchased for
the takeover, in 1995, of 14 franchised routes for Hong Kong Island. They
are used on routes serving Hong Kong's Mid-Levels area, where the size
of the Dart makes it ideal for the narrow roads, yet capable of meeting
the high passenger demand. It carries Citybus "Cityshuttle" logos, and
is on route 511, the Central Express service.
In 1999 these 21 vehicles returned to the
UK with Stagecoach, and 13 of them were allocated to Stagecoach Devon.
