A photograph of this Mercedes Vito minibus at this same location has already been shown on LTSV (last August), but there is a slight difference. I keep hoping that Go-Ahead London will apply fleetnumbers to its service vehicle fleet, and there have been a couple of isolated examples. For instance, this minibus was based at Silvertown garage and had a yellow card in the side windows showing 'company' fleetnumber FV22 and 'garage' fleetnumber FY04 (which presumably indicates Ferry rather than Finchley!). This card was still in place when photographed at Canning Town Bus Station on 7th May 2022, but it had now been joined by a second card, also yellow, which shows 'DS05 Henley Rd'. DS is the official TfL code for the new garage at Henley Road, which is barely a hundred yards from the existing Silvertown garage. The latter site had no room for expansion so, when bus route 69 was won on tender, a new base for its electric double-deckers was obtained on a vacant site nearby. On the LTSV database I do intend to record the FVxx fleetnumbers (that are believed to have been allocated to all Go-Ahead crew ferry vehicles) but not the local fleetnumbers.
