Details: Several of Phil Hambling's service vehicle photos from the 1980s have already appeared on LTSV, some of which came via Colin Lloyd. Phil has recently been supplying quite a lot of additional photos from this era and I will be adding these gradually over the next few months. First up is a view of one of the 27 Dodge Commando lorries bought by London Transport in the early 1980s. These were all in grey livery but there was quite a variety of body types, lengths and cab-front designs. 2306D was a box truck with tail-lift and crew cab, featuring the earlier design of front grille. Delivered in November 1981, by February 1987 (when it was photographed parked outside Golders Green Station) it had gained the twin pin-stripe livery enhancement, with blue roundels and Distribution Services lettering. The hatches in the front of the box body would allow the loading of some over-length items such as ladders.
