The initial sections of the Docklands Light Railway were opened in August 1987, and a small number of service vehicles were allocated to support the network. One (Ford Transit minibus 3337F) had arrived over a year earlier and carried a mid blue livery, with red upsweeps around the door. This was based on the livery carried by the trains themselves. The later additions wore a darker blue livery, sometimes anonymous, sometimes with lettering and a white/red stripe. The latter scheme is shown on Ford Escort van 3537F (fleetnumber not carried). It was photographed paying a visit to Acton Works on 28th February 1990, while it was eventually returned off-lease a few months later. The DLR continued to be supplied with vehicles by CDS/DSM until the early 1990s, since when it has managed its own fleet.
