Details: The restrictions imposed to try and combat the COVID-19 pandemic affected not only the delivery of new vehicles but also the disposal of older ones. Seen at Acton Works on 22nd August 2020 were a couple of vehicles which are probably on the way out. 8101F is one of eight Ford Transit Courier Kombi crew vans leased in late 2015 and which were mainly based at Lillie Bridge. Their role seems to have changed at some point, with several becoming very elusive and others being moved to other locations. 8101F had not been reported since December 2017 and had perhaps spent the past couple of years at one of the more inaccessible SV locations. Parked in the background is Ford Transit van 8115F, one of seven which carried 'Pointcare' lettering and were based at Arnos Grove. Four of the batch were sold in March, just as lockdown was starting, and it is believed the other three were also taken out of use at the time but were 'trapped' at Acton. 8112F was also present. At least four replacement vans were licensed in March 2020 but their delivery was also delayed, the first being seen at Arnos Grove in July.
