Details: Another of TfL Highways' anonymous Vauxhall Combo vans is LN57USP, seen at Acton Works on 12th June 2009. In fact, all three such vans were at Acton that day (LN57UNM, LN57UNX and LN57USP). Could the lack of lettering be because their use was only temporary? Have they returned to Carlisle Lane or been replaced? Or has their work ceased? These and many other questions will be answered one day, maybe.....

Steve HowardUNX was seen at Leytonstone Station (north side) on the night of 18th June between a pair of numbered service vehicles.Sat 27/06/2009, 18:30
Thomas YoungWell, what do you know! This van has now reappeared with Tube Lines logo and a fleetnumber. The allocation of fleetnumbers retrospectively is not unique (Astra cars 4794B to 4797B were new in 1995 and numbered in 1997) but it does suggest that there is a logic behind the numbered/un-numbered distinction. It remains to be seen whether the other two silver LN57 vans also gain numbers.Wed 15/07/2009, 23:29

Thomas YoungLN57UNM is now 6840V and LN57UNX is 6841V. They appear to be in use as mail vans. Thanks to Kim, some photos will be added soon.Sun 19/07/2009, 23:49
