NWFB - Single-deck Leyland Victory-2

New World First Bus (NWFB) terminated the passenger service of Leyland Victory-2s on 1 September 2000. The company is actively searching for the potential buyers of the withdrawn Victory-2s in the fleet. One of the buses, LV24, was converted into a single-deck bus for demonstration.

The upper deck, together with the staircase, were removed. The lower deck was then covered by a roof with peaked domes at both ends. Front destination display was removed, while the side and rear display were retained.

The removal of the staircase makes room for an extra 2-seater. The seating capacity is changed to 44, while a normal double-deck Victory-2 can offer 42 seats on the lower deck.

The phototgraphs show LV24 in the event of Bus Rally 2000 on 10 December, unless otherwise specified.
