|Another good catch by Derek, also at Stratford on 8th November 2022, was DY22LDJ, a Vauxhall Vivaro-E electric van operated by Stagecoach London from West Ham garage. Engineering support duties at Stagecoach London had been fulfilled by a fleet of Ford Transit Custom vans until late-2021. Then a series of swaps with Stagecoach South East saw the vans replaced by smaller Ford Transit Connect vans that were better suited to use in the expanded Ultra-Low Emission Zone in London. It seems that this was just a temporary move, and that Vauxhall electric vans are to be the new standard. As mentioned in September, similar vans have been noted at Barking and North Street, while one for Bromley is coming up shortly. DY22LDJ was included on a recent company fleetlist, which showed it to be allocated national fleetnumber 91760.
