Two years later, on 26th November 2012, No. 409 is captured at Yuen Long, but by this time it is one of only four such vehicles remaining, which were all withdrawn soon afterwards on 14th December. Route K65, on which these buses were primarily deployed, operates between Yuen Long and Lau Fau Shan, a route which is not suitable for larger buses - the newly delivered ADL Enviro400s are their replacements.
