Details: I thought it might be worthwhile to show the 'permanent' service vehicle parking area at Plumstead Elizabeth Line depot, since the move of the vehicles to the main car park seems to have been very temporary. This photo was taken from White Hart Avenue on 22nd June 2020 and shows the small yard where most of the vehicles are normally to be found. The location is about 50 yards north-east of the main vehicle entrance, as will be shown on the next image. There is a fence here, which makes photographing the vehicles almost impossible. The fence is actually two layers of mesh, which you can only see through from certain angles, and getting up close does not make things any clearer. Present at the time of the photo were three of the Ford Transit crew vans and two Transit dropside trucks (8654F and 8667F, the latter still in LUL white/blue/red). The opposite parking spaces (at the right of this view) and those backing on to the fence usually contain several of the nine Volkswagen Caddy Maxi crew vans allocated to the Elizabeth Line, but none were present on this occasion.
