Details: Preserved London Transport depot sweeper RL92 was moved during 2009 from Cobham Bus Museum to Twyford Water Works, where it was photographed on New Year's Day 2010. This view highlights the way in which the engine is mounted directly above the front wheel, and turns with it. The operator sits on the 'saddle' mounted on the main unit, and steers using the handle fixed to the engine housing. It would appear that there is no drive connection between the engine and the main unit, with the brushes being driven using chains from the trailing axle. However, there are at least four controls visible on the body (two levers, one pedal and one hand wheel). These presumably raise/lower the brush, move the brush scraper, control the water flow, etc.
