|Details: AEC Regent Breakdown Tender 832J was photographed outside the Emergency Vehicle shed at Neasden Depot on 14th March 1970. At this point the vehicle had been a tender for almost 20 years, adding to the 15 years it spent bodied as bus STL162. When initially converted in 1950 it wore plain red and was allocated to Merton Bus Garage. Transferred to railway use in 1956 it was repainted to red/cream, though as seen here it later returned to red. Despite its age, it was destined to remain in use for another 7 years, and was eventually preserved (in which guise it reverted to its red/cream livery). Visible inside the shed behind is much newer Ford Thames Trader box truck 1282F.|
