Details: Between 1977 and 1990 London Transport operated a total of 79 Bedford CF vans as alternates to the similarly-sized Ford Transit model. Unlike the Transits of this era (which were mostly grey), all of the CFs were red, though there is some doubt about 3037B, which may have also been grey. Most of the CFs, particularly those added after the adoption of the new numbering series for leased vehicles in 1982, were for use by the publicity and advertising department. 3329B was a one-off, leased in 1985 for use by the Operations Manager (Buses) from Gillingham Street Bus Garage in Victoria. It replaced similar 3078B, which had in turn replaced similar 2119B in 1982. According to official documents, 3329B was withdrawn in September 1989 when it was replaced by Ford Escort estate car 3749F. Phil caught 3329B on Oxford Street in May 1986, showing the Abbey District sticker applied to the bonnet. The bus stop behind, and the Routemaster bus following, both show the yellow highlighting used to distinguish 'tourist' bus routes.
