Ford Escort van 3455F was found lurking in the shadows of Harrow Weald Bus Garage on 28th November 1987. New just over a year earlier, it was assigned to the Plant Engineer and remained in stock for a shade over 3 years (being replaced by similar 3819F in 1989). Note the roof-rack fitted. Part of the reason for choosing this photo is the bus in the background, which is clearly not a London Transport vehicle. A batch of 27 new-build MCW Metrobuses had been ordered for use on the new 'Harrow Buses' network from 14th November 1987. However, their delivery was slightly delayed and a similar number of 13-year old Leyland Fleetline buses were hired from Kirkby Central of Sheffield to cover in the interim. These buses were all former Greater Manchester Transport vehicles, and they remained in that operator's orange, brown and white livery throughout the short period that they worked in London.
