|Details: On a misty 14th January 2009, Emergency Response Unit Atego 2593 was found at Finchley Central Station. Note the allocation plate at the bottom of the door. It is presumed that these are either stickers or magnetic, to allow for the reallocations which (so far at least) seem to be fairly regular. Reports of allocations of any of the other ERU vehicles would be appreciated.|

|Damon||This is curious as this one has never been seen at Camden. 2594 & 2597 were there today and were also seen there just before Christmas so it seems a bit weird that 2593 has slipped in and out in the meantime. I guess we'll never understand the ERU allocations system ..will we?||Sat 07/02/2009, 22:24|
|Thomas Young||So, were the Camden pair suitably 'plated'?||Sat 07/02/2009, 22:28|
|Damon||Yep. Both plated although 2594 had it higher up on the cab door on the white bit - different!|

|Kim Rennie||I was talking to one of the ERU Duty Managers in Acton Works last week. Vehicles are no longer allocated to specific bases but are rotated around for maintenance, servicing etc. The 'allocation' stickers allow crews to remove/return equipment to their 'own' lorry if there is more than one team in attendance. The two types of lorry are equipped to handle either p-way or rolling stock incidents, hence the different shutter arrangement. Former ERU body DB6 is still used by the ERU for storage and is standing demounted on its 'legs' in Acton Works at time of writing.||Sun 08/03/2009, 17:37|
