Details: Just three vehicles in the 5xxx number range remain in stock at present, although it is notable that none of them actually carry their allocated fleetnumbers. Also, they have all been modified to some extent and have most likely been purchased. The LT Museum's 5494F is the best known of the trio, the other pair being Ford Transit trucks fitted with generators and based at Lillie Bridge. Although they can be glimpsed (just) from the West Cromwell Road bridge, they are rarely seen (and thus photographed) out on the road, particularly in daylight. On the night of 16th July 2014 Ray came across 5909F parked on Drummond Street at Euston. New in 2006 as a mobile exhibition unit for the London Safety Camera Partnership, it was rebuilt in early 2010 with the generator removed from Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2562M (which it replaced). Along with similarly-equipped 5474F and 2584M (and three Cobul box trailers), the vehicles are assigned to 'ventilation' duties.
