Details: Lee decided to call in to Hounslow Heath Garage on his way home on 31st July 2020, and I'm glad he did because look what he found! Parked at the back of the yard were at least eight newly-delivered Renault Master vans. All apart from one seemed to have light-bars and to be in livery of red with yellow chevrons on the rear and Buses roundels on the sides. There is also company lettering, which appears to be very similar to that on older FT70006. The exception is the van at the far left, which we now know to be MF20RZE. This was in plain red and had no light-bar. I suspect that these vans will be allocated to each of the group's garages, with MF20RZE perhaps being retained for head-office use or spare cover.

Also visible in this view are an unmarked white Volkswagen Crafter van (EK19SVZ, user unknown) and a Cateano Levante coach in National Express livery (BX65WDF, operator also unknown). There are two ironies about the presence of this coach. First is that RATP-Dev ran similar vehicles on some National Express contracts until 2018 (when the United Motorcoaches operation was wound up). Second is that BX65WDF was new to Epsom Coaches (now part of RATP-Dev) as their EP02, passing later to Bournemouth as fleetnumber 350.
