5022VW ** S487YAN

Details: The second of two vehicles to have been reallocated new fleetnumbers after delivery is shown here. Volkswagen Transporter S487YAN was a one-off, short-wheelbase van for LBSL, new in January 1999. It was given fleetnumber 4918VW and carried this throughout its almost four year career, much of which was spent in North West London at locations such as Harrow and Edgware. However, this van was officially renumbered as 5022VW, presumably to avoid duplication with Ford Transit van S391YWP, which was allocated number 4918F. There are two oddities about this. First is that the Ford was delivered a month after the Volkswagen, which makes me think it should have been the one renumbered. Secondly, and mirroring the case with the two 4910Fs, the Ford van was never seen, and it is thus unknown whether it actually carried the disputed number. Colin caught 4918VW/5022VW approaching Victoria on 5th July 1999.
