|Details: One of the Cobul box trailers previously based at Lillie Bridge was moved to Acton Works a year or more ago. We finally got a chance to take a close-up look at it on 10th April 2018 and, unfortunately, it carried no identification marks. It is labelled as a 480D model, which confirms it is either CBT57 or CBT58. These were used by the ventilation department in conjunction with their mobile generators, and they appear to have been replaced by a pair of Peugeot Boxer vans in late 2014. The registration plate on the rear of this trailer shows KJ03DXA, this belonging to Ford Transit 5474F which started life as a dropside truck but was converted to a generator in about 2011. It was last licensed in February 2016.|
Two other items of interest are just visible in this photo taken in the lorry yard. First is mini tanker trailer T70, which was carrying the registration number of Ford Transit 7653F, sold in November 2017. Curiously, T70 has been seen in use since then (for example with 8430VW in December 2017) so it is odd that it regained the plates of a withdrawn vehicle. It may have been withdrawn more recently though, as a possible replacement was seen elsewhere in the works. Lastly is a demountable box body, now resting on the ground and in use as an electrical waste store. This carries a Tube Lines logo but its identity is also not currently known.
