Details: In 1979 the Permanent Way Engineers took delivery of four Ford A0609 box trucks for use as emergency vehicles (hence the red livery). They were allocated to Lillie Bridge (2), Whitechapel and Baker Street, replacing Leyland Titans such as 1275LD. The allocations seem to have been rotated at times. Among the relatively few photographs of these vehicles in my collection are one each of 2135F, 2136F and 2137F (seen here on 5th October 1986) at Baker Street. 2138F was a shorter wheelbase vehicle, which I have never seen a photograph of. According to my notebooks, I did see all four vehicles, but I was a mere lad whose interest didn't go far beyond underlining numbers in the books!
