Details: The London Coaches operation moved to the former Wandsworth Bus Garage in April 1988 and acquired this DAF 2500 articulated lorry about a year later. It's main role was as a driver trainer, as evidenced by the plates on the front, and the slightly nervous looking instructor in the passenger seat! This photo was taken outside the garage on 3rd March 1989, very soon after the vehicle was painted into company livery. Also visible are Duple, Berkhof and Van Hool bodied coaches, an MCW Metroliner of West Midlands Travel (who shared the Birmingham London Liner service) and one of the Routemasters used on the Sightseeing tour. The coach operations were eventually disbanded, leaving Wandsworth to work the sightseeing tour (and LBSL route 337).
