The model - Following the simultaneous release of the two 'in service' Dominants in September 2006 (B0020), two further examples of this model were released in Hong Kong in early January. These feature training vehicles BH 3013 (Training School) and BH 7644 (Training Unit).

The bus - KMB took delivery of 100 Duple Dominant MkII bodied Albions during 1975-76. These coaches were used on urban express services, commanding fares a great deal higher than those of the normal services. BH 3013 was withdrawn from passenger services in 1983 and entered the training fleet in November 1983. BH 7644 was also withdrawn in 1983, entering the training fleet in May 1983. A coloured photograph of the latter can be found on page 266 of Mike Davis' excellent reference book Hong Kong Buses Volume Two - Kowloon Motor Bus.
