Allocation data for service vehicles of the 1980s is a bit sketchy to say the least. Leased service vehicles were never included on LT's detailed Variations in Rolling Stock documents, and what we know comes from a few official fleetlists that were obtained, along with observations, which often contradict each other. For example, this Bedford Astra van was shown as being taken on lease in late 1986 for use by Abbey District, yet it was allegedly at North Street (Romford) a couple of months later. It looks as though the latter might be a red herring, since it was photographed at Ash Grove Garage (Abbey District) on 14th December 1986 and was later associated with Hobson House (the Abbey District HQ). Note that 3471B still had its full set of cabside lettering. On most examples, the London Transport lettering was soon removed, leaving just 'General Manager Buses'.
