The model - the 'Year of the Mouse' decorated Olympian breaks Corgi's ten-year stronghold of producing KMB's 'Year of   ' models. Produced by Cars Workshop, this new casting features several improvements over the Corgi casting, the most noticeable being the lack of internal poles and an opening rear engine cover.

The bus - AV326 is one of 531 11-metre Volvo Olympians with Alexander bodywork that entered service with KMB between January 1994 and September 1998. It was decorated with the 'Year of the Goat' livery in 2003, and the 'Year of the Rooster' livery in 2005, having entered service on 7 November 1997.
