Details: There are now six variations to the basic white/blue livery (or seven if you differentiate LBSL white/blue/red from LUL white/blue/red), and all but one are covered in the next five photographs. By chance, the set starts with the most basic livery, the 'no-stripe' white/blue as used by TfL Streets. Except that, as can be seen here, there is a stripe between the two base colours. As far as is known, the stripe is actually a safety feature, being highly reflective to aid visibility. So, on this livery, the stripe is white. I'm not going to start calling it white/blue/white though! Anyway, onto the photograph...

A somewhat unusual visitor to Go-Ahead London's Waterloo Garage on 21st August 2018 was TfL Streets Toyota Yaris car 8597T. This garage runs the erstwhile Red Arrow bus routes, now operated with battery electric buses, several of which can be seen plugged in and charging in the background. It is also home to one electric car, built by the same company as the chassis of the buses (BYD of China). FJ64OWO is just visible on the left. Given that the TfL Streets base is less than half a mile from here, the reason for 8597T's presence is not known. Perhaps its driver was making use of the canteen at this location, which is now open to the public as well as to bus drivers.
