Creative Master Northcord Limited has proudly released its second batch of Shanghai Shen Xin Bus model, cnbus 1008. It is again on the replica Sunwin Volvo B7R model, in the brand new colours of the Shanghai Shen Xin Bus Service Company Limited.

The new livery of Shanghai Shen Xin Bus is representing the new ownership of this joint venture company. 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.

cnbus 1008 carries fleet number SWK 001 which is shown operating on Showcase Route 49 in downtown Shanghai. SWK 001 is one of 25 Sunwin Volvo SWB6120KHV-3s of which the Company took delivery at the end of 2001. The Route is completely serviced by Volvo Sunwin air-conditioned buses by April 2005.

cnbus 1008 has special metal plates on all sides representing the name of “Dazhong” and “Shen Xin” in Chinese wordings respectively. It is the first time that CMN bus replicas have such realistic feature.

The cnbus 1008 model is limited to 1500 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.
