Until recently, the central fleet would normally see around 200 additions each year, and a visitor to Acton Works would usually find at least a couple of new vehicles present. The post-COVID financial situation has resulted in an unprecedented suspension of fleet renewal, and it has been well over a year since any new vehicles have been seen at Acton. On 4th February 2023, one new vehicle was found in the lorry yard at Acton, but being a rather specialised item, it is possible it had been ordered before the freeze. Carrying the standard blue livery and with number T80 applied to the headboard, it was a 3-axle flatbed trailer built by Nooteboom. This Dutch firm specialises in trailers for oversize or overlength loads, and T80 looks to be one of their Teletrailer Longrunner models. These have steerable rear axles and can be extended in length up to 30 meters. As an aside, the fact that this has been numbered T80 would suggest that the mini fuel-tanker trailer bought in about 2018 is most likely allocated T79.
