Details: The 42 Ford Escort vans in the leased fleet as of April 2000 included a large batch of 21 new in late-1998/early-1999 that had consecutive fleetnumbers 4854F to 4874F. The numbers were also applied in order of registration number, a traditional practice that was no longer commonly followed. The bulk of the batch was S982TMY to S998TMY inclusive, the final four being S32/34/35/36UMY. This was the time when an ever-increasing amount of numbers were being held back as 'select marks', hence the omission of S999TMY and S33UMY. The batch featured a mixture of 'Engineering services' and 'Support services' main lettering, though all seem to have only had 'London Underground Limited' on the doors (i.e. no department details). 4855F was hitched up to a Lords tow-truck when seen near Smallbills Garage on Bollo Lane in Acton.
