Details: It looks as though a few vehicles were delivered in July and August 2020, after the lockdown restrictions were eased but before our regular visits to Acton Works were allowed to resume. Neal sent in a couple of photos of a Ford Ranger pick-up in Trams white/blue/green livery, seen near Reeves Corner in Croydon on 23rd August 2020. It had been licensed in mid-July and it probably carries a fleetnumber but this was neatly obscured by the wing mirrors in both photos. Neal did well to catch these views though, as they seem to be taken from the top-deck of a pursuing bus. There are a couple of notable points about this vehicle. One, it is not the first Ranger for Trams. They had silver EY57OXH for use as an Incident Response Vehicle from before the TfL buy-out of the network in 2008. This seems to have been replaced by an unmarked white Ford Transit van in 2017. Two, the new Ranger has an open back and is fitted with chrome bars (referred to as a 'Sports Bar' as part of the Ranger Limited specification) which seem to serve no purpose (please correct me if you know better). Three, it has no fewer than seven labels/sets of lettering on the rear!
