Details: Looking at the database on LTSV might give the impression that London Transport stopped using unmarked cars in the early 1980s. They have in fact continued to be a feature, with several hundred in use at any one time. However, from 1981 such cars were leased rather than bought, and the registration numbers were not generally in batches. Plus of course they were unmarked (duh!) and came in a variety of colours, making identification virtually impossible. As such, even when likely candidates are reported, I will not be adding them to the database. Ray found this pair of Volkswagen Golf estate cars in the yard at Finchley Central on 14th May 2016. Both were plain white and they had consecutive registrations, making it highly unlikely that they belong to members of staff. These VWs have perhaps replaced Peugeot Partner Tepees KP62FVH/J/K/L. By the way, the Peugeots did get added to the database since I assumed (wrongly) that they might be allocated fleetnumbers.
