Details: Following the acquisition of one each in 1982 and 1983, four further Leyland Freighter bus recovery trucks were bought in 1984, numbered 2415L to 2418L. All originally had twin-boom equipment by Wreckers International and ran on trade plates until about 1990. 2417L was allocated to Shepherds Bush then Victoria (where it was photographed on 27th May 1990), and initially carried trade plate 942LC. It was later given retrospective registration B733XJD. For various reasons the fleet was cut back in the early 1990s. Two of the 1984 batch were given new bodywork featuring more capable 'spectacle hoists' and remained in service, while the other pair were sold. 2417L passed to BTS of Borehamwood in 1991, where it retained the red livery with yellow bumper. 2418L was sold to the Linkfast Group soon afterwards.
