|Details: An unexpected development in autumn 2015 was the arrival of a batch of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans for use by LUL. London Buses has standardised on this type since 2005, taking 158 so far. LUL however has mainly stuck with the Ford Transit and has only had about a dozen Sprinters in the same period. The new vans are medium wheelbase, high-roof (the same as the LBSL Incident Response Units) but configured as crew vans and fitted with roof racks. Two are based at Finchley Central while several more are at Stratford Market Depot. On 24th October 2015, Ray found new 8139M parked at Finchley. I should add that the designation of 'high-roof' is Mercedes' own, and that there is a taller version referred to as 'super-high-roof'!|
