Hired Transits at Aldgate

There are still a couple of hired Transits at Aldgate, but some (or all) are actually used by the British Transport Police. For this location (and Victoria basement) I will only record hires if they are def in SV use, ie have LBSL staff, or labels, etc.

Still on hire

These hire vehicles are lasting a couple of months or more.

Guesswork and assumptions

Hopefully this forum will encourage people to report sightings even if there is uncertainty. There is no such thing as wrong! I figured LN05XTT would be an SV as it was in the same livery as LN05XRK, which did carry LBSL labels. However, it could equally have been a contractors vehicle, several of which were also present. Also there were a pair of silver Y-reg Ford Galaxies. Who knows....

In view of Tom's post I can now add that LN05XTT was also at Aldgate on 6th October.
Nothing at that time, other than its presence, confirmed it was a Hired SV.
Shows how wrong one can be !

LN05XRK was at Aldgate again today, along with high-roof van YH05VDZ (plain white) and mid-height minibus LN05XTT (Ford Rentals & Dagenham Motors on white).
