Details: The 'traditional' Land Rover model achieved an amazing 67 year production run, with the first appearing in 1948 and the last at the beginning of 2016. London Transport bought three in 1963 and followed this with small quantities over the next 30 years, while a handful have featured in the fleets of various bus companies and recovery contractors. What looks set to be the final addition was LV16HSG, a long-wheelbase model fitted with a generator and video display equipment for use by the London Transport Museum. First licensed in August 2016 it initially carried unmarked white but soon gained the fleetnumber LTM003. LTM001 was the number given to a red Fiat Ducato van new in 2013, while LTM002 is assumed to be allocated to blue Ducato LC61FMU. The new Land Rover is described as a multi-purpose vehicle. As well as forming a small mobile exhibition unit, it is also capable of towing trailers and smaller buses. It was photographed at the back of the Museum Depot in Acton on 15th October 2016.
