Details: The advent of London Overground and TfL Rail/Crossrail has somewhat blurred the distinction between what used to be LT and BR rail services. London Overground is covered on LTSV since some of its vehicles were supplied (and numbered) by LUL Distribution Services, but most vehicles supporting the 'mainline' rail routes are of course operated by Network Rail. I haven't had much interest in these because most carry fairly plain white liveries with just company logos and, most importantly, no fleetnumbers. Defying both of these comments is this Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van seen at West Hampstead (Thameslink) station on 8th December 2017. It has a smart, emergency-style livery and carries fleetnumber RISU1. The meaning of this is fairly obvious from the lettering on the bonnet and bodysides, while a very similar vehicle was seen at the same location earlier in the year carrying number RICP1 (this was DK55YCY, a Rail Incident Command Post).
