Waiting for me upon my return from holiday was the latest edition of Bus Focus (No. 54), the magazine from Bus Fan World.


My thanks to GK9636 for providing me with photographs of two actual buses modelled by Creative Master Northcord. The first is the recently announced special commissioned model for Hang Zhou Bus (cnbus0001) and the second is Volvo B7R/Sunwin in the new colours of Shanghai Shen Xin Bus Service (cnbus1009).
