- this model was released in February 2017 and was only available to
Network Shuttle members.. Buses Model Co. released their version of
this bus back in 2009 and this was limited to just 30 pieces
- LM5 was one of a batch of ten - CMB's last non-air conditioned buses.
These ten vehicles entered service during December 1993. The bus carried
this plain red livery in 1997, as shown in Gakei's
All ten vehicles were transferred to New
World First Bus in September 1998, however, as part of that Company's policy
of withdrawal of non air-con buses, the whole batch was withdrawn early
In July 2000, the batch arrived back in the
UK, having been completely refurbished, repainted and converted to single
door, for operation by First PMT. They were subsequently transferred to
First Manchester, operating mainly on route 17 from Manchester Arndale
Centre to Rochdale.
