Following Model 1's recent announcement that it planned to release two Stagecoach liveried Volvo Olympians later in the year, my records indicate only one such liveried vehicle has been issued to date, this being produced by Corgi back in January 1999. It featured fleet no. 8 (GK3194) on route 801R to Shatin (43217). When Stagecoach ceased operations, this bus was acquired by Citybus and received fleet no. 507.
