Details: This van caused me some grief when it was new! Mercedes-Benz Sprinter crew van WX65VRK carries fleetnumber 8174M on the nearside and 8177M on the offside. Since WX65VRJ was 8137M and WX65VRL was 8139M I surmised that both 8174M and 8177M were wrong and WX65VRK was actually 8138M. It appears that it was indeed intended to be numbered 8138M, but three of the batch of fourteen of these vans were reassigned and given new fleetnumbers 8176M to 8178M, the vacated 8138, 8146 and 8147 remaining unused. Unfortunately, WX65VRK is officially now 8178M but I have decided to ignore that and call it 8177M, especially as the official 8177M (WX65VRU) actually carries number 8178M! Most of the batch are nocturnal out of Stratford, and I have yet to photograph any of them. Two or three are usually to be found at Finchley Central Station (as here on 28th March 2017), making them much more accessible.
