|Details: Apart from those relating to company take overs, service vehicles from one operator very rarely see re-use in another operator's fleet. The exception that proves the rule was the acquisition in late 2007 and early 2008 of two second-hand vehicles by Travel London. Both had already been used as SVs and, by coincidence, both were allocated to the Battersea garage. By further coincidence, Ray photographed both of them there on 6th May 2008.|
The 2008 addition was Ford Transit KJ03DYH. As the livery suggests, this was a former LUL vehicle, having been number 5479F in the Metronet fleet. During that time it had been converted from a plain van to a crew van, while Travel London further modified it by adding a light-bar and rear spot lights. Note that the side fleetname appears to have been reapplied higher than at first, and that the logos lack the 'W' segment.
