The model - This is one of two 60th Anniversary decorated China Motor Bus Leyland Olympians set for release on 1st November 2017. This bus has already been modelled by Buses Model Co. back in 2005 (see L40806). This anniversary was celebrated in 1993.

The bus - LM1 was one of a batch of ten - CMB's last non-air conditioned buses. These ten vehicles entered service during December 1993. 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in September 1998, however, as part of that Company's policy of withdrawal of non air-con buses, the whole batch was withdrawn early in 2000.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.
