Details: This photo is similar to (though better than) one already published but is included as it shows a minor mystery. Ford Transit van 5916F was allocated to the Tube Lines escalators department based latterly at Frank Pick House at Acton. Although appearing anonymous it did have a Tube Lines logo on the offside. An almost identical vehicle (6728F) was delivered in April 2009 and, having been seen parked in the same place, was assumed to be a replacement for the then 3-year old 5916F. And indeed there were no more sightings reported of 5916F. However, it was seen again, ten months later, back in its old place! Was it reallocated? Did it remain in use but not get reported? Was it perhaps loaned back from the lessor for some reason? Two further facts are that 6728F was also at Frank Pick House on this day (6th April 2010), while a fleetlist received that very week did not include 5916F.
