|Details: The three Mercedes-Benz Econic dustcarts used by Tube Lines have been remarkably camera-shy over the last couple of years despite being seen regularly across many parts of the LUL system. Judging by this picture they also serve the London Buses headquarters at Victoria Coach Station. 2576M is the only 2-axle Econic used, and predates the 3-axle pair by 2 years. A quite different style of compactor body is also fitted. The stylish cab is designed for easy crew access and features a bus-like folding door on the nearside and a deep, hinged one on the drivers side.|
Carrying the number 2576, it was captured on film on 9th May 2006 as it left the Coach Station basement (although how far down the ramp it would have got is an interesting question). On the left is regular resident VW Transporter van 5675VW. The basement here is also used by the Metropolitan Police, as evidenced by their car behind, and there is a large police station behind the photographer.
