The model - this model is believed to have been issued in October 1998. This model has a driver and one waiting passenger. The limited edition certificate comes in the form of a postcard depicting Central Bus Terminus in 1953.

The bus - the China Motor Bus 'DA' class entered service between 1990 and 1997. It consists of 92 vehicles, with DA1-DA56 featuring small top sliding windows, similar to UK vehicles, the windows being rubber mounted. DA57-82 have no opening windows, these still being rubber mounted, whilst the final batch, DA83-DA92, have bonded glazing. DA41 entered service in August 1993.

My thanks to Andrew Shirley for providing the details of this model.
