The model - this is one of two versions of the China Motor Bus 'LM' class released on 23rd November 2017, the other featuring LM10.

The busLM2 was one of a batch of ten - CMB's last non-air conditioned buses. These ten vehicles entered service during December 1993. The bus carried this plain red livery in 1997, as shown in Gakei's excellent site.

All ten vehicles were transferred to New World First Bus in September 1998, however, as part of that Company's policy of withdrawal of non air-con buses, the whole batch was withdrawn early in 2000. 

In July 2000, the batch arrived back in the UK, having been completely refurbished, repainted and converted to single door, for operation by First PMT. They were subsequently transferred to First Manchester, operating mainly on route 17 from Manchester Arndale Centre to Rochdale.
