Details: The central fleet has included almost 600 Ford Escort vans between the arrival of the first in 1968 and the disposal of the last in about 2007. For the first few years, such vans were painted grey, with red becoming standard from 1972. From the mid-1980s vans were sometime white or blue instead, while the white and blue livery became standard for LUL vehicles from 1990. 3420F was one of twelve Escort vans delivered in October 1986 with D9xxTTV registrations, several of which carried the white livery shown here. It had been thought this was to indicate those fitted with petrol (instead of diesel) engines but this does not seem to be consistent. 3420F was leased for the catering department, as shown by the 'General Manager Catering' department lettering. Note that the main fleetname is lacking the first and last letters. Photographed in the old Turnpike Lane Bus Station in March 1988, observant visitors may note the shop in the background with Grey Green Travel branding, this later being changed to Dix Travel.
