Details: Arriva London's Vauxhall Corsa crew ferry cars do seem to be rather prone to reallocation, due to both route changes and attempts to balance the mileages. Photographed in the car park of Tesco on the Old Kent Road on 13th July 2012, car number 99 (FP11XAY) was evidently working from Ash Grove, whose route 168 has crew changes nearby. This car and similar 98 FG11XZZ (which was also present), both started out at Lea Valley garage (LV) before moving to Barking (DX) then on to Ash Grove (AE). By the way, all but the last 7 of the 1st generation of Corsa cars have now been withdrawn (fleetnumbers 92 to 136). 32 of these numbers have been reused on 2nd generation cars, with 13 not yet seen. It may be that route tendering losses have reduced the requirement and that the remaining numbers (112-120, 122, 125, 130 and 136) will not reappear.
