Details: I was surprised to find that I had not yet published a photograph of well-known Ford Trader 1282F in its pre-preserved red livery. New in 1963 as an auxiliary railway breakdown tender, it was later converted into a communications vehicle. Interestingly I have been unable to determine when this conversion took place, although it was before May 1976. Upon replacement in 1982 (by Ford A-series 2086F) 1282F was retained as a 'heritage' vehicle, and repainted in non-authentic Chiswick green livery. Although no longer kept on LUL premises, the vehicle is believed to still exist. Whilst active, 1282F was kept at Neasden Depot, as seen here.
