Details: A trip to Edgware Road Station on 3rd September 2011 was slightly disappointing. Several new LUL vehicles had been reported in the small yard here. However, on this day the yard area was crowded with contractors vehicles working on the adjacent building site (the new traction power supply building going up on the site of the Griffith House yard). In compensation, parked outside was this recovery truck. CS02REC is a four-axle Scania 164G 580 with Boniface bodywork and operated by J and A Recovery. It was picking up (literally) a slightly unusual bus. Route 27 is normally worked by SLE and VLE class buses from Stamford Brook Garage. However, this was an early VA bus from Hounslow. Hounslow had operated an extra service over part of route 27 in July and August to cover for Underground closures. However, they also operate the night service on the route. The green containers on the right are in the area recently cleared by the demolition of the traincrew offices.
