Details: An unexpected addition to the leased fleet in May 2013 was a group of Fiat Doblo Maxi vans, with 6 so far reported. These carried fleetnumbers 7660 to 7665 with a new suffix of FI. Although wearing LUL livery, it soon became clear that they were used for internal mail deliveries. This is proved by this view of three of the vans parked outside the 55 Broadway mail room on Petty France, Westminster on 18th June 2013. 7665FI is to the fore, with 7664FI and 7660FI behind. The livery suggests that the rumours of the demise of the Tube Lines brand were not exaggerated. What is odd is that the Fiat Doblo model was chosen, since it is also available badged as a Vauxhall Combo (compare the above with this photo of a new Vauxhall Combo). Perhaps the required combination of long-wheelbase and cargo doors on both sides is only available on the Fiat version.
