Details: Sometimes photos are more interesting than they at first appear. This view taken on the stub road in Acton Works on 11th January 2020 shows a Toyota Prius hybrid car in LUL white/blue/red livery. Nothing unusual there, over 40 examples of this combination having been delivered since 2017. However, 8653T was originally in Elizabeth Line white/blue/purple. New in May/June 2018, it was delivered to the Elizabeth Line in August, most likely being kept at Plumstead. It would appear that, with the delayed opening of the Elizabeth Line recently pushed back even further, it has been decided to make better use of some of its assets. After all, the vehicle leases will be almost up by the time they are all needed. Volkswagen Transporter crew van 8643VW was also seen at Acton on the same day, having undergone the same transformation. It is not known if any more of the 24 Elizabeth Line vehicles will be redeployed.
