Details: At first I assumed this photo was of one of the early generations of Ford Escort Radio Control cars. However, the first batch was numbered 1564F to 1576F, while this car is 1598F, new two months later in February 1970. It would appear that the batch 1593F to 1598F were in fact additional radio cars. All wore red livery, were allocated to bus garages, and lasted for the same 2-year period. As this photo shows, at least some carried roof-mounted roundels (note that this corrects SUP15B). 1598F was allocated to Wood Green and was seen at the nearby Turnpike Lane Bus Station on 11th August 1971.
