|Details: The Elizabeth Line has been in the news recently with the not completely unexpected announcement that the introduction of the service, originally planned for December 2018, was to be postponed for up to a year. On LTSV we had reported the delivery of a fleet of twelve service vehicles for the operation in August 2018, followed by at least one further van shortly afterwards. Rather surprisingly, more vehicles have now followed. Unlike the first batch, which (apart from one Toyota car) were all Volkswagens, the latest additions are Fords. Seen in the car park at Acton Works on 13th October 2018 was 8647F, a long-wheelbase, high-roof Transit Mk8 crew van. Similar 8646F was also present, while four more of the type (including LR68HYG) were delivered in plain white/blue later in the month, although it remains to be seen if these are also destined for the Elizabeth Line.|
