Details: A recent addition to the locations list on this website, North Crescent is a depot that was originally operated by Grant Rail (see here) but which is now run by Tube Lines. North Crescent is a turning off Cody Road, close to the new West Ham bus garage. The depot has a large shed, with an internal road on three sides (the fourth side being North Crescent itself). The south and north ends of this road can be seen from the two gates, although it is likely more vehicles are hidden on the west side. Ray took this photo from the north gate on 5th September 2011. To the fore is Ford Transit dropside 6570F. As already reported, this vehicle recently lost its Tube Lines logos, although its appearance here suggests it is still operated by them. Parked behind is another dropside, most likely 6386F, while in the distance is Transit van 6858F. The latter is one of two vans marked up as Mobile Maintenance Units for the Plant Services section. As can be seen, a tow-bar is fitted.
