Details: To the casual observer or reader of ABCs, the numbering of LCBS's service vehicle fleet may have appeared slightly chaotic. The main series started at 1B but there were others numbered in the high 500s, quite a few between 1148 and 1415, and a handful of recovery trucks with letter prefixes instead of suffixes.
The reasons for this were the vehicles and orders inherited from LT on the formation of the new company. This Ford D stores lorry was ordered by LT as its 1579F. By the time it was delivered to Reigate, this garage was controlled by the new company, and they took 1000 off the fleetnumber to make it 579F. Looking very much like an LT SV, the lorry was seen leaving its home garage some time in the 1970s.
