Details: By the time Ford Escort vans 3326F and 3327F were delivered in July 1985, London Transport had already made use of nearly 300 of the type (not all at the same time). This pair were for use by the Plant Manager (Buses) and official documents showed that they were 'additional', indicating that they were not leased to replace any existing vehicles. Based at Chiswick Works their role took them to various bus garages and 3326F was photographed inside Enfield Garage in September 1987. This was the month in which Enfield lost its last conductors and Routemaster buses, with the conversion of route 279 to OPO (one person operation). For at least the next six years, Enfield's scheduled allocation was made up entirely of M-class MCW Metrobuses, with none of the early mini- and midi-buses being based here. A handful of Routemaster and Daimler Fleetline buses were retained for use as trainers, some of which can be seen in the background of this photo. The Routemaster on the left is a trainer (recognisable by the black panel on the rear) as is the Fleetline in Leaside livery alongside.
