Details: You wait ages for a wagon on a lorry and then two turn up. Well, not quite, as this photo was taken over a month after the previous one. Passing through Eastleigh on 30th April 2019 was Allelys MAN TGA tractor T800AHH (fleetnumber 45), no stranger to LTSV. The trailer appears to be the same as in both other photos, but the load this time is wagon JLE7. LT/LUL wagons were traditionally given fleetnumbers with a prefix based on their function (for example, HW were hopper wagons, RW were rail wagons and CMs had cement mixers fitted). However, 23 new wagons were built by Bombardier in 1994 specifically for use on the Jubilee Line extension, and were given numbers starting from 1 and prefixed JLE. Even though the name is no longer relevant, they have never been updated. A closer look at the photo suggests that JLE7 (and presumably also JLE1 to JLE15) is very similar to the earlier Procor-built GP wagons, as seen in the previous photo. It does not have the lift-out side panels or the stanchions, but there are pockets for these along the solebars.
