September 1998 when CMB lost it's franchise. In 2000 DM 9, DM12 and DM25
were sold to Citybus for use as driver training buses. The remainder of
the class were withdrawn in 2002, with DM28 being specially decorated as
the 'Last Hot Dog', a term used for non air-con buses. DM17 was subsequently
purchased and returned to the UK for preservation.

livery, as applied to this model and sporting NWS Transport fleetnames.
