Details: 1928F was a Ford D300 box truck with crew cab, new in 1975 and used by the permanent way engineer. Based initially at Hounslow bus garage, it later moved to Whitechapel, Lillie Bridge and Chiswick. This interesting photo, taken at the latter location on 4th March 1981, shows it carrying an LT Urgent illuminated box above the cab. Although several Ford D box trucks did operate as emergency vehicles (including 1759F repainted from grey to red), 1928F has not been reported as being one of them. However, according to the DVLA website, it was red when last licensed (in 1990), so it may well have been repainted by LT. The buses alongside are FRM1 and (probably) RM1.

RayProbably not based at the garage, but where? The Heathrow extension opened in 1975, the year this was delivered and it may have been used in connection with this, based at one of the Hounslow stations. The 'Urgent' box was possibly added when it was transferred to Whitechapel.Wed 08/02/2012, 22:08
