Details: Passing Plumstead depot on a train recently, I noticed that the Elizabeth Line service vehicles had been moved again. They started out in a temporary yard north of White Hart Avenue, then moved to a small yard within the new depot. This was on the south side of (and adjoining) White Hart Avenue, but it had a fine mesh fence which precluded photography. The third location is at the south side of the main depot car park, which is easily viewed from White Hart Avenue. Fourteen vehicles were present on 23rd February 2020, most of which can be seen in this view. Nearest the camera on the left is Volkswagen Caddy Maxi crew van 8639VW, which had a portable light-bar mounted above the passenger door. The other vehicles visible are (left to right) Caddy 8634VW, Transit crew vans 8648F, 8646F and 8647F, Transit dropsides 8667F (in LUL livery) and 8654F then Caddy crew vans 8638VW, 8636VW, 8637VW and 8641VW.

Thomas YoungIt looks like this might have been a lucky catch, as a few days later the vehicles had moved again. I took a closer look today (during a bike ride for exercise) and there was just one SV in the main car park (minibus 8651VW). A further 7 SVs were back in the small 'side' yard (adjoining White Hart Avenue), but the security fence made it hard to identify most of them.Wed 20/05/2020, 13:10
