Details: A development in the past year or so has been the delivery of a number of vans for use as Staff Welfare Facilities. The examples seen so far have all been 'Jumbo' Ford Transits, either crew vans (with additional side windows, like 6463F) or plain vans (like 6464F). YS08FSO has side windows on both sides, and seems to be based at Stratford Station, where this picture was taken on 9th December 2008. The most recent examples have been registered in Yorkshire, perhaps due to their conversion work by a firm called Clarks (badge visible on rear), although the earlier ones (see links above) were in more usual Kx series. One other curiosity on these vehicles is that the Tube Lines logos on the cab doors are applied lower down than standard. This vehicle is no doubt allocated a fleetnumber but it unfortunately does not carry it.

Thomas YoungClarks are based in Doncaster (see http://www.van-conversion.co.uk/home.asp) so this could indeed be the reason for the Yorkshire regs.
