|The model -
model was released in Hong Kong in August 1998, but failed to appear in
any significant numbers here in the UK. It carries the New World First
Bus 'wave' livery, and the casting is different to the two earlier
models, Nos. 44301 & 44302, having the centre exit doors set
as shown in the photograph. This was as a result of a ruling by the
Kong Transport Department, who considered the close proximity of the
to the position for wheelchair passengers to be unsafe.
this model were again made
available by New World First Bus, to mark the opening of their Customer
Service Centre, which occurred on 16th July 2000. The model can also be
purchased "on-line" through the Cyber Shop of NWFB.
- This, the first new Dennis Trident for this new bus company, was
registered on 21st July 1998 and it is the first of a batch of 190 such
vehicles delivered in the company's first year.
