Details: Another vehicle that is no stranger to LTSV is Leyland Freighter bus recovery truck 2416L, with 8 photos already published. Added today are another two, both taken during an open-day at Wood Green Garage on 23rd June 1990. Interestingly, these photos show a livery variant that has not previously been seen, namely red with a grey skirt along both the cab and bodywork. The grey skirt livery (with white waist-band) had been adopted as standard by London Buses at the end of 1987, but this appears to be the only one of the six tow trucks to have been given it (2415L later gained the London General variant with a slightly darker grey skirt topped with a yellow stripe). As with 2415L, 2416L was rebuilt with new bodywork and booms in about 1991, and it remained in use with Leaside until about 2001.
