Details: 1416LD makes its sixth appearance on LTSV with this fine shot of it being driven through Labworth on Canvey Island, Essex in October 1999, no doubt on its way to a bus rally. Following behind is some old bus, provincial half-cabs being beyond my ken. New in May 1966, 1416LD was a Leyland Titan breakdown tender, initially used by the Signal Engineer but transferring to Camberwell garage for use on bus recovery work in about 1976. It was sold in 1982 and has now been in preservation for more than twice as long as it worked for London Transport. That is, if it still survives. It was resident at the Pumphouse Museum in Walthamstow for much of the early 2010s, but the large yard at that location was sold off for housing in about 2014 and many of the vehicles had to be moved away. 1416LD was last licensed in 2013, though it had a new V5C (logbook) issued in April 2016, suggesting it had changed ownership. Any info on this vehicle's current location would be welcomed.
