Details: Another of the first batch of five red Volkswagen Transporter vans for London Transport Buses was 4889VW, seen at a rather non-descript location (the signpost behind the van had been taped over for some reason) on 23rd January 1999. According to Colin's notes, the photo was taken in Stratford. Although two months old, the van was still in plain red livery with just fleetnumbers for identification. I assume this van was eventually given the red squares and lettering, though another photo by Colin taken at the end of May 1999 shows it still in plain red. At least one other van from the batch (4890VW) was used in plain red but gained livery later on, while all except 4889VW were photographed in full livery.
