|Details: An unexpected find was a pair of service vehicles parked at Bow Road Station on 14th July 2020. As far as I know, this location has not had an allocation of vehicles for many years, and it remains to be seen if these are based here or were just visiting. It is notable that neither vehicle has been seen elsewhere. In the case of VW Caddy Maxi crew van 9133VW in front, that is perhaps understandable, as this is another of the six vans that had only been delivered in June 2020. Ford Transit dropside truck 8847F however had been new in November 2019 and had not previously been seen by anyone.|
Bow Road Station has a single building and a small, triangular yard, reached by a long access road running from Wellington Way. The station platforms are at sub-surface level, and the tracks are parallel to the vehicles seen here, behind and below the wall. The light blue structure visible in the background is the bridge carrying Mornington Grove over the railway. The Works and Building department was the main user of this location, with cleaning services and vending services also operating from here at times. However, it has been suggested that the cleaning services actually used a different (but nearby) premises.
