Details: This rather rusty-looking Ford Escort van photographed on the mud outside Plumstead Garage on 14th December 2008 is one of a small number of service vehicles to have come back for a second bite. As the Scottish registration might suggest, M938WSN was originally in the Stagecoach fleet, painted red and based at Bow Garage (seen there in 2005). It was disposed of that same year but resurfaced in late 2008, repainted white and in use by Sovereign Recovery. It may have gone direct to Sovereign (and kept a low profile for a couple of years!), or had an intervening owner. It has therefore had a similar career to former South London L145NMY (see here for details). Could it be that these vehicles were 'given' to Sovereign as payment for bus recovery work?!
