Details: This little set-piece on display at the Chiswick Works open day on 11th August 1985 has been illustrated before. However, this is another photo where something in the background has caught my eye. On the right is part of a brown Austin Maestro, with registration ending in 9COG. I suspect this may be van 3335L, which we have always listed as B949GOG. B949GOG is not listed by the DVLA as being on an Austin vehicle, whereas B949COG is (and is shown as being brown as well). 3335L was reportedly taken into stock in September 1985, but B949COG was first licensed in February. It was presumably unmarked, and hence did not attract the attention of the many photographers present that day. Perhaps somebody else has a photo with a clearer view of the vehicle's registration and/or body? Also visible in this view are Leyland artic 2389L, and the fleetname (partially worn off) on vehicle recovery trailer ST40.

Thomas YoungOn going back through some contemporary lists, it appears that 3335L was indeed B949COG rather than B949GOG, so it is almost certainly the vehicle shown here. I wonder where the reference to GOG came from then?!Mon 12/11/2012, 13:41
