Last year Clive Greedus set up a Facebook group entitled 'London Transport Service Vehicles - Historical Research Group'. This has already accrued lots of members, with photos and discussions about old service vehicles. I have been given permission to show a couple of photos from the group, starting with this one taken near Kidwelly (South Wales) in the late-1960s or early-1970s. Ford Anglia car 592BXV was owned by Brian's brother at the time, but it was originally with London Transport. As well as the numbered/liveried vehicles, LT also had a sizable fleet of unmarked cars. These were generally assigned to particular members of staff and could often be recognised by having registration numbers in series with other LT service vehicles or buses. Having said that, photos of such cars are very rare and, as a result, we don't know the livery for most of them (this not being mentioned on the LT documents that covered them). 592BXV was new in June 1961 and was allocated to Northfleet Garage as a 'Joint Car'. I have never been clear if this title relates to vehicles that were shared between different departments (such as Operations and Engineering) or between different garages. Many LT cars were only kept for a year or two, and 592BXV was no exception, being sold in 1963 following replacement by similar 483FJJ.
