Another service vehicle seen in Milton Keynes recently was Arriva-branded Ford Transit Custom van RV20XON. I was going to add this vehicle to the database but then I considered whether it was really eligible. After all, Milton Keynes is about the same distance from London as Brighton. The fact that LOTS did cover the Milton Keynes operation for a while is really down to a quirk of history. To recap, the London Omnibus Traction Society was set up in 1964 and provided information about buses running i the London Transport area. They continued to do this as the operations beyond the Greater London boundary were split off to form London Country Bus Services. This company was then split into four, and the North West company was eventually bought by Luton and District (formed from part of National Bus Company subsidiary United Counties) and merged to form the Shires. It was then bought by Arriva and became Arriva the Shires, and it took over bus services in Milton Keynes following the purchase of MK Metro by Arriva. Phew! All that to explain that I don't intend to cover the Milton Keynes fleet in the LTSV database. Happy to show the occasional photo though...
