- following the release in April 2013 of this new casting in Old Master Q
livery, it was only a matter of time before a standard liveried example
was issued. On 24th April confirmation came with the announcement that
two versions of AVC48 would be released on 8th May, one on route 273
(this version) and the other on route 78K (94002). Each is
limited to 900 pieces.
2009 Kowloon Motor Bus placed an order for 40 MCV bodied Volvo B7RLEs
for use on lower capacity routes. These were delivered between January
and August 2010. A further batch of 30 similar buses were delivered
between December 2011 and May 2012. AVC48 is one of the second batch,
being registered on 14th February 2012. The following page in the
of the site provides further details on this class.
