Details: Silvertown is one of the smallest bus garages in London, with a peak run-out of 66 buses. However, the garage is remote from the 5 routes operated and hence requires the use of crew ferries. We currently have six such vehicles listed as being allocated here, all Mercedes-Benz Vito minibuses in unmarked red, and all but one new during 2019. On 31st August 2019, Ray caught RJ19HSX coming out of Factory Road and turning on to Store Road. The road layout around here has always been a bit odd, with a road running each side of the railway that once went to North Woolwich. There used to be numerous level crossings to provide road access to the mainly industrial premises between here and the river. Although the line closed in 2006, much of its formation is now used for the Abbey Wood branch of the Elizabeth Line. Since level crossings are no longer suitable, access to the riverside premises is now only from either end of Factory Road. The building visible above the minibus is the location at which the Elizabeth Line resurfaces after crossing under the Thames.
