Grenadier P8SOV

Details: Another Sovereign Recovery Volvo, this time P8SOV (named The Grenadier) on Edgware Road on 3rd January 2009. Note the engineer poking around under the rear wheel of the ailing Metroline Scania. This vehicle is broadly similar to N11SOV with detail differences in the livery and front-end fittings. Of note is that the registration P8SOV was earlier carried by a rather different Volvo recovery truck named Churchill (that Damon photographed in August 2006). With a small pool of 'select' registrations, such transfers are likely to take place as the fleet is renewed. Given that the vehicles are often essentially the same, I will not attempt to differentiate them on the database.
