Details: A surprising find at Ealing Broadway on 3rd August 2019 was a new van for Abellio. New as in not second-hand, pretty rare in the Abellio fleet! LO19MUE is a long-wheelbase Nissan NV300, licensed as being white but actually carrying a livery reminiscent of the LBSL Incident Response Units. No fleetnumber was visible, though it may have been carried on the rear. This is the first NV300 on LTSV, but the design looks very familiar. It is in fact a badge-engineered Renault Trafic (third generation), which can also be found masquerading as a Vauxhall/Opel Vivaro, a Fiat Talento and soon as a Mitsubishi Express! Things get more confusing, as the second generation Renault Trafic was also badged by Nissan but as the Primastar. And the Vauxhall/Opel Vivaro was changed in 2019 from being based on the Renault Trafic to being based on the Citroen Jumpy, which itself has also been badged as the Citroen Dispatch, Fiat Scudo, Peugeot Expert and Toyota ProAce! At least you know where you are with a Ford Transit...

RayThis vehicle is operated and owned by a contractor working on behalf of Abellio. Unlike Sovereign, who work for a number of companies, it is carrying Abellio logos. It seems to attend rail replacement work in West London.Sat 07/09/2019, 12:31
