Details: 8459F was the first of a trio of Ford Transit dropside trucks new in late 2017 and allocated to Stratford Market Depot. It was noted in service on 2nd November 2017 but, according to the DVLA, was not actually licensed until the 8th, suggesting a paperwork mix-up. On the 27th of the same month, Ray caught it leaving Acton Works. As with most LUL Transit dropsides, this one is based on the LWB ECF (Long WheelBase, Extended Chassis Frame) variant. It has a tail-lift and single cab, resulting in the longest possible load space. Having said that, a further stretched Transit chassis is now available, with wheelbase increased from 3.95m (on LWB and LWB ECF) to 4.52m. Designated the L5 variant, none have yet been taken as service vehicles.
