H101 R999SOV

Date added to site

Printer-friendly version of this page
Details: Another whopper for Sovereign. R999SOV is a 4-axle Volvo FH built in 2015 and first reported in October 2017. The fact that it is left-hand drive (as highlighted by one of the two Caution notices) suggests it was not bought new. On 14th November 2017 Derek caught it tugging an Arriva London HV bus past Kennington park, probably back to Brixton garage. This is the third reported 4-axle truck for Sovereign, following on from SN08KWG and RO14TOR. The new fleetnumbering scheme remains a bit of an unknown. RO14TOR has been reported as H123, while R999SOV is H101. Could it be that the H1xx are for heavy recovery vehicles, ?2xx for mid-sized vehicles (perhaps the flatbeds) and SV3xx for the vans?

Thomas YoungRef the fleetnumbering, my guesswork was (for once) right! I noted a Sovereign Recovery flatbed with number S220 the other dayThu 14/12/2017, 16:39
