.........  PRESS RELEASE  .........
21st November 2002

Creative Master Northcord Limited has proudly released its second livery on the replica Sunwin Volvo B7R model in the colours of the Shanghai Shen Xin Bus Service Company Limited. Shanghai Shen Xin Bus Service Limited commenced operation in March 1998. It is a Sino-Singapore joint venture company, jointly owned by Shanghai No.2 Public Transport Company and SBS International Holdings Private Limited, a member of the Singapore DelGro Corporation Limited.

The Shanghai Shen Xin Bus Service Limited bus SWK001 is shown operating on Showcase Route 49 in downtown Shanghai. It is one of 25 Sunwin Volvo SWB6120KHV-3s of which the Company took delivery at the end of 2001.

The replica features excellent detailing, inside and out, including an opening engine door and engine detail. This is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the windows and livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. The model has no ugly metal poles to hold it together.

The cnbus 1002 model is limited to 2,000 pieces for worldwide distribution. They will be distributed by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (UK), Porte Publishing Company (Japan) and Concorde Hobby Shop (HK) respectively.

Creative Master Northcord Limited (CMNL)

In 2000 Route 49 topped the Service Quality competition organized by Shanghai Urban Transport Bureau.  In April 2001, route 49 was presented with the Model Unit Award by the Shanghai
Municipal Public Transport Bureau (TB).  Again in Sept 2001, awarded the Best Customer Service Award.

For those in possession of the Hong Kong Buses Yearbook 2002, a whole chapter (in Chinese!) is devoted to the real bus (pp110).
