Details: I had this photo filed under fleetnumber 4910F, but this Ford Fiesta car is one of two vehicles new around the turn of 1998/1999 that were officially reassigned with new numbers a couple of months later, seemingly to remove duplications. The Fiesta was one of three delivered in red in December 1998 and numbered 4910F to 4912F. The number 4910F had already been assigned to a Ford Escort van new in October 1998, though that van was never seen so it is not known if it actually carried the number, or even what livery it was in. The Fiesta was allocated replacement number 5023F on paper but continued to carry 4910F. It was allocated to Stratford Bus Station but could also be found at other bus stations in the area such as Walthamstow, Turnpike Lane and (as seen here on 23rd July 1999) Ilford. Ilford bus station was actually just a bus standing area, with no passenger stops. The identity of the red and yellow bus just visible on the right is not known but it is thought to be one of the minibuses used on Mobility Bus services.
