The Ford Escort van was probably the most numerous single type of service vehicle in the 1980s. At the time of this photo (July 1986), there were 104 in the fleet, just over a fifth of the total. 3309F was fairly typical, having red livery and white lettering (apart from the gold London Transport titles). Assigned to the general purpose 'Group 3', it was found at Baker Street station, a location which always seemed to have a few such vans present. The only official allocation information for this van is from a list dated January 1986, which had it based at Shepherds Bush bus garage. 3309F was leased from Hertz and was returned to them in 1988, after exactly three years.
