Details: When new Mercedes demountable lorries were delivered in 1990 an important test was whether they would fit in the Breakdown Garage at Neasden depot. Apparently the arrival of the Leyland Titan tenders in 1964 had required some modifications to be made both to the building and the doors! This view shows newly-delivered 2492M being carefully backed into the shed in mid-1990. The lorry had yet to gain markings (apart from fleetnumbers) and was operating on trade plates, while parked alongside is the Breakdown Foreman's Ford Sierra estate car 3642F. This building was used by the breakdown vehicles for many years and the painted markings on the ground in front are in fact to do with staff assembly points in case of evacuation of the main depot being required. 'Cleaners' appears under 2492M and 'Conciliation' on the right!
