On a tour of South London locations on 5th July 2022, Derek visited the Go-Ahead London garage referred to as Croydon but actually located some distance from there on Beddington Lane. As usual several Mercedes Vito crew ferry minibuses were visible in the front yard, though this one in particular caught my eye. RX71SYU had been new in autumn 2021 and was initially based at Northumberland Park Garage. Within a couple of months it had moved south to Bexleyheath, and was noted working from there with the fleetnumber FV65 applied to the front (with transfers). It had evidently moved even further south in mid-2022 but, more interestingly, it seems to have lost its fleetnumber. I hope to obtain an official list from Go-Ahead London at some point, as this might be the only way to get all the allocated fleetnumbers given the variations in application policy. By the way, it is possible that the move of this minibus to Croydon was temporary, perhaps in connection with the Wimbledon Tennis bus services. Further sightings would be welcomed. On the building behind the minibus is a sign made of a numberplate marked GL 45 SES. This will be a valid registration number in 23 years (!) but its significance here is unknown. Does Go-Ahead have its own Optician?
