Details: Another vehicle that has tenuous links to 'real' service vehicles, but a nice shot nonetheless. Seen near Shell House on the South Bank on 17th May 2007, N749OYR is an East Lancs 2000 bodied Dennis Dart used as a recruitment centre. Whether this is for the Metropolitan Police or bus company London Central is not clear! Interestingly, London Central was the only operator of this type of bus (as the DEL class) in London, but this is not one of them. The Met acquired a batch of about 10 such vehicles, and most operated in plain white as police crew buses, alongside a vast fleet of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter minibuses and a sole Duple 425 coach. This vehicle, or a very similar one, has been seen at Arriva's Enfield garage and is just visible in other pictures of L649MBM and V736GBK.
