Details: This interesting photograph was taken at Park Royal Garage on 21st July 1996. This small base was originally used by R&I Buses, taken over by MTL London Northern in October 1995. As can be seen, several of the buses still retained the attractive R&I red and blue livery. Three service vehicles are visible, the smallest being brand new Daewoo Nexia car N764PHX on the right. The Nexia was based on the Vauxhall Astra design, and this is the only Daewoo vehicle ever recorded as a service vehicle. It carried MTL logos on red livery but lasted less than 6 years before being delicensed and presumably scrapped. Just visible in front of this car is white Ford Transit minibus D221PVM with fleetnumber 187, while on the left is high-roof Transit van L474NHE displaying fleetnumber FS801. Park Royal appears to have been a maintenance outstation of the main R&I garage at North Acton. Does anyone know when it closed?
