Fleetnumbers 3542F to 3547F were applied to a batch of 6 Ford Escort estates new in 1987, all with D3xxOBE registrations (originating in Lincoln). I have them listed as being a mix of 3-door and 5-door versions, though I don't have photos of all of them to back this up. 3547F was certainly 5-door, and was photographed in Hainault on 8th December 1988. It has a slightly non-standard livery comprising an Underground roundel on a white square, along with 'Depot Mobile Team' lettering. Official documents listed all six being leased for use by the 'D.E. (Met)', which could be Depot Engineer, while they were later all listed as 'Fleet Manager Met LUL'. I presumed Met referred to the Metropolitan Line, and several of the cars were allocated to Neasden (including this one). However, 3542F was allocated to Ealing Common, 3543F to Hainault (!) and 3544F to Morden.
