Known information about models not released:
Harrow Buses Advertised, but never released due to original Harrow Buses network being lost at re-tender, the distinctive liveried buses then being sold at an early stage in their lives
Maidstone Boro'line A prototype for this livery (never advertised) was auctioned some time later at a Corgi "motor show" event at the Rover Heritage Museum at Gaydon in 199x. Presumably not produced because the operator went into liquidation. In any case it would not have been authentic as Metrobuses were never operated by Boro'line

Dates please note the following:
Date in Red = the expected release date
Date in Green = the original advertised release date when the actual release date is not known
Date in Black = the actual confirmed release date
