|Details: Photographed at Chiswick Works on 22nd December 1977, Ford Transit van YMM594H had been replaced from its railway police duties but was temporarily serving as a works fire engine. The rear doors had been removed, and a framework and platform fitted. A hose reel was fitted to the platform, while what looks like a pump was added inside the van. What is not clear is whether the vehicle carried its own supply of water. The van, along with two others from the same batch, was eventually sold in February 1980. By the way, the details of vehicles bought by London Transport for use by the railway police are not included in the database on this website. However, they were listed in the variation sheets produced by LT (showing daily changes to the bus and service vehicle fleets) so the information may eventually be published.|
