- this is the third version of KMB's prototype Leyland Olympian AL1, produced
by Buses Model Co. The two previous models carried Bus
Fan World banner advertising, however, this version is in standard
air-con livery. It was released in Hong Kong on 28th May 2004.
- AL1 was the prototype 11-metre Leyland Olympian and entered service
on 12th May 1988, and was used extensively for trialling the air-conditioning
equipment. It was unique, being the only vehicle in the class to feature
opening windows, just in case the air-con failed! It also featured
a small destination screen compared to the others in the class.
