|It seems that the breaking up of London Transport into separate companies in the latter half of the 1980s led to some uncertainties about how to letter service vehicles, and for a while it was not uncommon for vehicles to have no markings other than fleetnumbers. Illustrating this is this view of Ford Escort van 3413F at Heathrow Central Bus Station on 10th June 1988. The van had been leased in October 1986 for use by the Abbey bus operating district and remained in stock for a shade over 3 years.
