Details: Having implied that CDS was no longer involved in supplying service vehicles to the bus companies by 1993, this photo has forced me to rethink. K853MGT was one of three Ford Transit vans (K851-853MGT) used by the London Northern bus unit from early 1993. However, K857-859MGT were three similar vans which went to the Selkent unit. This could just be a coincidence, or perhaps CDS still had some involvement. K853MGT was seen leaving Finchley Garage on 1st December 1993, a couple of days before this garage was closed as a result of route tendering losses. London Northern was taken over by Metroline, and K853MGT survived until about 2007, being based at Willesden Garage.
