The model - this model is one of a set of three Olympians issued as 'The Olympian Story'. See 45004b and 45004c for the two other models.  

The bus - LA1 belonged to the first batch of new Leyland Olympians ordered by CMB ten years after introducing the two-axled Olympians in 1981. She was also the first 11 metre, three-axled Olympian of CMB fitted with Alexander R type bodywork.
