|Details: Something of a surprise was that the new Nissan Leaf electric cars delivered in August 2020 and given TfL white/blue livery have been turning up at bus stations. 9101N was first seen at Walthamstow on 26th September (as shown here), though was later seen at Turnpike Lane along with sister 9102N. Going by allocations over the past few years, Walthamstow does not have any dedicated vehicles but is often visited by vans and cars from Turnpike Lane. The odd aspect is that these cars carry generic TfL livery, previously used mainly for the Streets section. The most recent cars for LBSL carried the LUL-clone white/blue/red livery. I can speculatively come up with three possible explanations. 1. The Nissans are only here temporarily, pending other deliveries. 2. It has been decided that the 'new' LBSL livery was too much like the LUL livery. 3. It has been decided that cars should be in a generic livery to simplify transfer. We shall see... |
Sorry about the rather odd framing of this photo. It seems that Bob's camera was irresistibly drawn to the HCT Enviro 200 bus in the background!
