|Two new Ford Transit 'Staff Welfare Facility' vans were seen at Acton Works on 5th December 2020, this view showing YT70VHC. Notable is the fact that lettering has been applied but no fleetnumbers, and that the vans are in plain white, lacking the usual blue skirt and red stripe. Ray speculated that perhaps both fleetnumbers and skirts were still to be added, though I reckon it is just as likely that these will be considered to be part of the lorry fleet and hence not be assigned fleetnumbers. Time will tell. Similar YT70VHD was parked nearby, while in the background can be seen ten-year old 6987F still in white/blue/lilac but having recently had its TfL Taxi-Private Hire 'Compliance Enforcement' lettering removed. The unknown with this van is whether it is awaiting disposal or has been reassigned to a different department. The final piece of guesswork associated with this photo concerns the two facility vans delivered in September 2020, YT70VHZ and YT70VJE. It looks as though that pair may have only been on loan pending the delivery of YT70VHC and YT70VHD.
