The model - this model was an unexpected release, being issued in Hong Kong on 7th May 2007.

The bus - KMB took delivery of 91 long-wheelbase 24 seater Toyota Coasters between 1987 and 1990. They are to the same design as the short-wheelbase Coasters, operating as Public and Private Light Buses in Hong Kong in their thousands. Fitted with air-conditioning, they also feature tinted windows and have an additional steel sheet placed on the roof, with an air gap between it and the actual roof, to help reduce heat intrusion.

The above information has been extracted from Mike Davis's excellent book 'Hong Kong Buses - Volume Two - Kowloon Motor Bus', published by DTS Publishing.
