Details: From 1977 until 1988, London Transport took several batches of Sherpa vans as alternates to the more numerous Ford Transit and Bedford CF types. The largest single batch was of 20 leased in late-1983/early-1984 and numbered as 3150L to 3169L. The L suffix betrays the fact that the design was from the Leyland stable, although by this time the vans were being badged as Freight Rovers. Most of this batch were grey (a couple were in red), and the majority were used by the Cleaning Services department, replacing similar vans from 1978. One of the exceptions was 3168L, allocated to LT Catering and photographed at Allsop Place (behind Baker Street Station) in May 1986. The location is disguised by the building work but note the distinctive manhole cover, this also being visible in more recent photos such as one from 2013. Most of the vans lasted for just under 4 years.
