Details: Two more Ford Cargo articulated tractor units were delivered to London Transport in February 1983, numbered 2382F and 2394F. These differed from earlier 2373F in not having cranes, and also being heavier 1913 models (2373F had been a Cargo 1313. The first two digits of the designation indicate the gross weight and the last two the net engine power). The 1913 was the heaviest Ford Cargo variant used by London Transport, though the range included models up to 3424s for long-haul work. 2382F was caught departing from Parsons Green Works a few years later. It was coupled to one of the 1984 Crane-Fruehauf trailers (CT33) but still had the grey bumper and wheelarches (changed to black by 1988). 2382F was withdrawn in 1993 while trailer CT33 lasted until 2000 and was repainted blue.

This photograph is the first on LTSV to show both sides of the Parsons Green facility. Located on a long and relatively narrow site alongside the railway, there was a continuous building on the right (south-east) side, with a series of smaller buildings on the left. The roadway between the two was quite narrow, resulting in some care being needed when moving and parking lorries, and it led to a small yard at the far end. Compare this photo with that of the superb model built by Clive Greedus. More about Parsons Green can be found towards the end of today's batch of photos.
