Details: Another mystery at Acton Works, this time on 16th November 2019. 8381VW is a Volkswagen Caddy Maxi crew van based at Edgware Track Depot and is one of a batch of five numbered 8380VW to 8384VW. There may actually be six there but 8385VW has never been reported since delivery. Anyway, when seen at Acton, 8381VW had livery on the rear but the side was in unmarked white/blue and there was no LUL roundel on the bonnet. The van had been noted a week or so earlier, leaving the works on a low-loader. It is presumed that it had had an accident and was being taken away for repairs. It is further assumed that all the offside panels (and bonnet) required replacement, hence the loss of the livery. It is still further assumed (!) that the red stripe and lettering were re-applied at Acton before the van was dispatched back to Edgware. Interestingly, sister van 8380VW was also seen at Acton a couple of weeks later, but with no signs of damage.
