|Details: The fleetnumber 1234F was allocated in 1961 to a Ford Thames Trader Dropside Lorry which was in stock until 1972. However, when a Leyland National bus was acquired for conversion into a mobile shop in 1982, the number was re-used. The number was chosen as it tied in with the LT enquiry telephone number of 01-222-1234. 1234L (SCO422L) was new to Plymouth City Transport in 1972, and saw much use during LT's Golden Jubilee celebrations in 1983. In April 1984 it was moved to Clapham bus garage for storage, where it was photographed on 13th January 1985. It was later stored at Southall, Chiswick and Acton before finally being sold in June 1989. Parked behind is one of the five AEC Swift buses also converted into service vehicles. These all retained their original or modified bus stock numbers, and were used as mobile recruitment offices, classrooms and stores.|
