- this is one of two models believed to have
been issued in October 1998 depicting the same vehicle with the same
route number and destination. The difference between the two is that
this model features a driver and has seated passengers, whereas the
second (PHM-22102), features just a driver. I believe the limited edition certificate, which
comes in the form of a postcard depicting Central Bus Terminus in 1953
and quotes a quantity of 5,000, is shared between the two models.
Looking back through my records, a newsletter received in early January
1999 from Digby's Miniature Automobiles (see below) mentions this model as being limited to just 300 pieces. Included in a separate bag is a
standing passenger, a bus stop, two spare tyres and driving mirrors.
- the China Motor Bus 'DA' class entered service between 1990 and 1997.
It consists of 92 vehicles, with DA1-DA56 featuring small top sliding windows,
similar to UK vehicles, the windows being rubber mounted. DA57-82 have
no opening windows, these still being rubber mounted, whilst the final
batch, DA83-DA92, have bonded glazing. DA41 entered service in August 1993.
