Details: A previously unreported vehicle was this long-wheelbase Mk4 Ford Transit van seen at Uxbridge Bus Station on 7th May 1998. Chiltern Rover was one of several localised fleetnames used by The Shires, this one being for operations from Amersham Garage. The Shires itself was a new name created in 1995 to unify the Luton & District and London Country North West operations. Its various fleetnames gradually disappeared following the creation of the Arriva brand in 1997. The van had evidently come in to London to attend to the bus visible in the background, this being one of 2 Northern-Counties bodied Volvo B6s bought by Motts (Yellow Bus) in 1994. Motts was bought by LDT/The Shires in 1995 and the B6s fitted in with a large fleet of similar buses already owned.
