Details: Until recently, most Abellio service vehicles had been obtained second-hand. A couple of Ford Transits were bought new in 2016 but from 2019 onwards a number of new (or nearly new) Citroen and Peugeot vans have been added, starting a new fleetnumber series in the 69xx range. The Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert are essentially the same design, with detail differences around the front end. The models come in three lengths, of which Abellio now has examples of each. The first long van to be seen (with the same wheelbase as the standard van but an extended rear overhang) was Peugeot Expert MC19XNE, fleetnumber 6907. Based at Fulwell/Twickenham, the van was photographed passing through Richmond on 28th August 2020. All of the vans are white but they have either a green or an orange waist stripe, and there is also some variety in the size and detail of the lettering. Note that this van has yellow applied around the front end. This could be a safety feature, or it could perhaps be related to the COVID situation. A number of trains and aircraft were given yellow 'masks' around their front ends, to promote the fact that passengers had to wear face masks while travelling.
