In mid-2023 I received reports of a black van with well@tfl markings seen in the lorry yard at Acton Works. I presumed that this was a follow-on (or addition) to the Fiat Ducato box van seen the previous year (NX67NLP, also with well@tfl lettering but on a white livery). When Ray visited Acton on 15th July 2023 he was able to get a closer look at the new van, which turned out to be a black Citroen Relay registered LC70VLO. The biggest surprise was that it carried a fleetnumber (9168C), in white lettering in the usual position near the front quarterlights. The allocation of new fleetnumbers had got as high as 9165 (with a few gaps) in 2020, then stalled due to the financial difficulties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is possible that this van - first registered on 31st December 2020 - has been operated since new but this seems unlikely. DVLA data shows it as being grey and with a V5C issued on 12th May 2023. V5Cs are usually issued in connection with a change of owner/keeper. So, if this vehicle is second-hand, it represents only the second such addition in recent years, the first being specialised Power Supply department van 7755F. We still aren't too clear on what well@tfl is, nor whether NX67NLP remains in use. If it is, the Ducato may also now be numbered.
