- news of this model first appeared on this site on 31st July 2004, after
a pre-production example was displayed at the 'Exhibition on History
of Hong Kong Buses'. The model features the later plain front grille area,
presumably replaced after accident damage. Alternate route nos./destinations
of 111 Ping Shek and 106 Chai Wan are provided. The model comes with a
limited edition certificate which shows a photograph of BR2 with
it's original ECW style grille.
- as part of the policy of China Motor Bus in the early 1980's to assess
different types of vehicles, two Leyland Olympians were ordered and delivered
in 1981. BR1 was a 10-metre example, with BR2 being slightly longer at
10.3-metre. BR2 was refurbished in the mid-1980's and received the coach
livery featured on the model.
