A new base was opened for London Transport's publicity and advertising vans in about 1986 at Ferry Lane, Walthamstow. Despite the name, this location was actually off Forest Road (this becoming Ferry Lane nearer to Tottenham), east of the reservoirs, and was close to where the original AEC Works had been. The location took on the vans previously based at Walthamstow Bus Garage and it remained in use until at least the 1990s, albeit by then semi-privatised as LTA. More recently it has been redeveloped with flats as 'Blackhorse Mills'. Photographed in the car park in April 1988 was Ford Transit van 3192F, new in September 1984 and destined to be sold before the end of the year. This Mk2 Transit has the sliding doors favoured by the publicity department but it appears to have been a cover vehicle, official lists showing it as allocated to the Distribution Services Manager at Chiswick Works.
