Details: 3049F was a Ford Escort van leased in August 1982 and kept for a little over 4 years. It was allocated to Chiswick but was photographed inside Turnham Green garage on 17th June 1983. Turnham Green had closed as an operational bus garage in May 1980, its buses (and the V allocation code) transferring to the former Chiswick High Road tram depot (which was renamed Stamford Brook). However, Turnham Green was retained for other functions, including the storage of new and redundant buses. A BL, RM and DMS bus can be seen in the background. The allocation code XV was used (perhaps derived from ex-V) but it is not known if this was official, and it was almost certainly never applied to any vehicles. The garage was finally closed in 1986 and has since been demolished.
