Details: Because most recovery vehicles are not listed in the database, it is quite easy to miss the fact that a vehicle has already been shown. This Scania lorry has in fact already made three appearances on LTSV, although it has to be said that on one occasion there was some doubt as to its identity. Also, this new photo shows a considerable change. Photographed coming along Chiswick High Road on 13th August 2019, CS02REC is a four-axle Scania 164G 580 belonging to J and A Recovery. It had previously been shown in 2009 (quite near the above location), when it was white with C Spearing recovery. By 2011 it was with J and A Recovery, though still in the same livery, which it still carried in 2014. In 2019 it was still with J and A, now with additional front lights and repainted red with 'modern' lettering and a large griffin motif. The silver on black registration plates are anachronistic but fitting. It is interesting that in three of the four photos published, the vehicle was towing a London United bus.
