Details: Service vehicles used in support of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) have appeared on LTSV before, but not for many years. From the systems opening in 1987, such vehicles were provided by Distribution Services as part of the main leased fleet. From 1992 the management of the line was passed from London Regional Transport to the London Docklands Development Corporation, while in 1997 a concession for the operation was awarded to Serco Docklands Limited. Although the infrastructure is now owned by a subsidiary of TfL, the concession is still in place, and is due to pass to Keolis/Amey in December 2014. Very little is known of support vehicles used between 1992 and 2014 but then a member reported a few sightings and these were subsequently added to the database. All were Ford Transits, mostly white, and some featuring three digit fleetnumbers. A recent addition has been high-roof van 003 (BU14VBF), which carries yellow/green chevrons and Emergency Response Team lettering. It was photographed at Greenwich Station on 8th July 2014. Also visible is a Ford Transit Connect van of CGL (City Greenwich Lewisham Rail), the company responsible for infrastructure maintenance on the Lewisham extension.
