The photographs and text below belong to Anthony Lui. You may set the photographs as the wallpaper in your PC.

Self-discipline is expected as I do not put my name in the pictures so as to retain its originality.

Kowloon Motor Bus Daimler CVG6s

D418 (AD7324, 30618) is a Daimler CVG6LX-34. It was withdrawn in January 1989. However, it was reinstated on 3 August 1990. It was being preserved by Kowloon Motor Bus when the pictures were taken on 10 April, 1993. This bus has not been seen after 1994. It has been scraped already.

D430 (AD7336, 30626) is another CVG6LX-34. It was converted to a small bus container in early 1990s. It can carry 2 electric powered Dennis small buses. The seats in the bus were all removed. Flooring at the rear half of the upper deck was removed but the stairs were retained so that I could lean my head out of the windscreen of the upper deck. These small buses were specially designed by Kowloon Motor Bus! One of them are shown below. They were photographed on the same day in early 1990s. Two Fleetline training buses were behind it. If you would like to see D430, you may go to KMB Siu Ho Wan Depot because it was written off on 17 September 1991.

D550 (AD7456, 30744) was one of the CVG6LX-34s in cartoon livery. This bus was converted to a open top bus on 27 May 1992. It was photographed on 28 March 1999 in KMB Shatin Depot.

This photograph was taken in early 1970s on Hennesey Road, Wan Chai by Transport Department of Hong Kong. A CVG6LX-30 was going to stop. This KMB bus serving Cross Harbour Route 103, one of the first cross harbour routes. The two red and yellow logos beside the destination equipment showed that it was one-man operated. Passengers had to tender exact fare as they enter.
