This is a view of Battersea Garage as seen from Stewarts Lane (the name is perhaps better known as the name of the railway depot it leads to) on 15th August 2023. As with many modern bus garages, covered accommodation for buses is limited to the engineering bays, other buses parking in the large yard. Over 180 buses are based here, including 74 New Routemasters like LT610 seen here. However, the reason for including this photo is the white vehicle visible parked in the background amidst the staff cars. This turned out to be ex Hackney CT Toyota Hiace minibus DG53DPY, and I only noticed this since it still carried the yellow C logos on the bonnet and doors. The minibus is not believed to be an operational Abellio vehicle, though it is ironic for it to end up here, as the location has previous for using 'second-life' service vehicles. 15 years ago Ford Transit van KJ03DYH (ex Metronet) and Citroen Berlingo estate RA53WKP (ex Metroline) were both based here.
