- this superb model was first announced on this site in May 2001 and was
released in Hong Kong in June. It is the only model to have been produced
from this casting. It is one of ABC Models best, and is now very sought
after, with one selling on e-bay in May 2004 for £97!
- CM1 was one of two wide-bodied MCW Metroriders acquired by CMB in 1988
for trials on various routes. It was fitted, from new, with air-conditioning
whereas CM2 was retrospectively fitted with air-con in 1989. It obviously
proved unsuccessful, and no further orders were placed. Both were scrapped
in February 1996.
Hong Kong Yearbook contains an article on the MCW Metrorider and includes
several photos of CM1 and CM2 including several of CM1 being cut for scrap.
