|Details: I am very grateful to Ray for supplying this photograph. Steve and I had visited Westdown Road in Leyton on 30th April 2016 and noticed a new Ford Ranger parked in the yard. However, it was between two vans and we could only see the bonnet. Hence we didn't get its fleetnumber. Despite having an injured leg, Ray made the trek up to Leyton a few days later and found... the Ranger was gone. He suggested it might have been just visiting from Hainault Depot (which has more 'previous' when it comes to operating 4x4 vehicles). Even so, Ray decided to look again on 6th May and the Ranger was in. He even managed to persuade a passing member of staff to take a photograph of it for us.|
8064F (as we now know it is) is the second Ford Ranger to be added recently, following from 8044F last summer. Prior to this, there had been no Rangers in the fleet since 2012, Mitsubishi L200s being the preferred model for such work. Parked alongside was new crew van 8062F, which is curiously described by the DVLA as a 'Ford Transit 350 (Motor Home/caravan)'!
