Details: A crucial but rarely used service vehicle is the LUL Emergency Control Unit, kept at Acton Works and appearing only during major incidents or events. As such, the vehicles can last a long time. From 1991 until 2006, Mercedes-Benz lorry 2488M was the nominated chassis, fitted with demountable body DB7. The body was replaced by DB25 in 2006 but 2488M soldiered on until 2014 (by which time it was 23 years old). It was then replaced by MAN LE chassis 2587, which had been in general use since delivery in 2006. The lorry had red/blue chevrons and emergency lettering added to its front, and it may have had its fold-under tail-lift removed. The elusive vehicle was caught leaving Acton Works on 25th February 2016, a month short of its tenth birthday.
