|Details: New service vehicles for Metroline can often be found parked outside their CELF works in Perivale (such as in June 2012, March 2015 and March this year). The latest additions were photographed on 11th June 2016 and comprised Ford Transit vans AV16YGJ (at the front), AV16YGG and AV16YGH (at the back). The vans had light-bars but were yet to gain company lettering. I was surpised to see Metroline take Ford Transits as they had previously standardised on the smaller Transit Connect model. They do have a Mk7 Transit based at Greenford, but this was inherited from First London. The last Transit acquired by Metroline before that was HJ54WCF back in 2004. In terms of full-sized vans, Metroline do have a trio of Renault Masters new in 2011, so perhaps the new Transits are to replace these.|
