Red was the standard livery for service vehicles in 1986/1987, being worn by at least 114 of the 135 D-prefix vehicles added to the leased fleet. Of the other 21 vehicles, blue or white were the most common colours, with one each in beige, black and orange. The white vehicles comprised 6 Ford Escort vans and one Ford Transit, the latter being an ex-dealer vehicle acquired for cover purposes. The Escorts are thought to have been specified in white to distinguish their petrol engines from the normal diesel ones. 3485F had been allocated to the Cleaning Services department, though it was lettered for the 'Dept. of Civil Engineering', and it remained in stock for the (then) customary three years. Colin photographed it at Acton Works on 30th May 1990, just before it was returned off-lease.
