Details: Tankers were one of the rarest type of service vehicle operated by London Transport. A total of ten rigid tankers have featured in the centrally numbered fleet over the past 70 years, and four of those were for the carriage of distilled water. Of the six fuel tankers, four were bought second hand, including 1673Q and 2000S, while just two were bought new, both on Bedford chassis. The first to arrive was 2216B (CUC216V) in November 1979. Recorded as a TK1630 model, the version with wider mudguards and double bumpers was usually known as the KM. Colin Lloyd found 2216B at home in Upton Park garage on 26th July 1987 by which time the vehicle had acquired Forest District bus stickers on its white cab (originally grey?).
