The model - details of the two versions of this model were announced in mid March 2008 and they were released on 21st March. Both carry the same product number of B0025 - I have therefore allocated this model the number B0025A for ease of reference. The other features L308 on route 51 to Kam Tin (B0025B).
 
The bus
Kowloon Motor Bus took delivery of thirty Albion Viking EVK55CL chassis in 1976 and they were bodied in Hong Kong by Union Auto Body Builders (UABB).  During their life several of the batch were totally rebuilt by KMB and others received other alterations, most noticeable being the reduced height side windows.
