Details: One of the last sizeable batches of inspector's vehicles for London Transport (identifiable by their roof-mounted roundels) were ten Astra vans registered in the F/MJR series, numbered 3673B to 3682B and delivered in spring 1989. Most of the batch gained new lettering later in the year upon the formation of the new bus operating units. A typical example is 3674B, allocated to Hanwell and seen with the early Centrewest logo in this view taken at Ealing Hospital on 3rd March 1990. This batch was notable for not having any manufacturers badging on the fronts (and I have never seen a photo of the back of one). General Motors was at the time in the process of dropping the Bedford name previously applied to Astra vans in favour of the Vauxhall brand. Although I have listed these vehicles as Vauxhalls, the DVLA records them as Bedfords. The B fleetnumber suffix continued in use for several years after the change.
