Details: London Transport Buses received three batches of Ford Transit vans in the second half of the 1990s, though all of the first batch had been withdrawn in 1999. Representing the third batch, new in late 1997, is 4799F, caught coming off the level crossing at Enfield Lock station on 6th May 2000. The location would suggest that this van was based at Turnpike Lane, but allocation information from this period is a bit patchy. Up to the late 1990s, allocations were included in official lists which were made available. For later periods, we are reliant on reported observations. 4799F appeared on one official list but, as with most of the LTB vehicles, the allocation was given as the generic 'Buckingham Palace Road' (i.e. Victoria Coach Station). Unfortunately, only two sightings of 4799F have been added, neither of which gave the location. In the background of this photo is another Mk5 Transit, this being a high-roof crew van in the orange and white livery of AMEC Rail. This was one of several companies to be awarded contracts for infrastructure maintenance on the national rail network. In fact I was employed by AMEC Rail for a time in 1998/1999, based in their Wimbledon office.
