|Possible Metrobus Transit at Eltham||
Fri 03/03/06, 15:28
|Whilst speaking to the Metrobus crew of their newish Ford Galaxy GU05 HNA, at Eltham on 23.02.06, they referred to another vehicle with them. I took this to be a white Transit T219PBP, & photographed it. I have so far been unable to locate this as an S/V, & of course unable to re-confirm with the crew that this was their vehicle. The Galaxy is based at Polhill, as I believe was the Transit. Perhaps if anyone - Ray maybe - is around that area, or Eltham Bus Station, & sees anything of this vehicle, then perhaps they could confirm its status ? When I saw it is was fitted with roof bars & carrying ladders. Cheers. John in Leeds

|I have removed the serial number incorrecly shown by me as 9001 for this sv. 9001 should of course have related to the Transit Connect, GY53CYJ - my mistake, & thanks Ray ! John L-M.|

|Ray - thanks for the list. The crew didn't appear inebriated ! They definitely had a second vehicle with them, referred to as ''the one behind'' & that was the T-reg Transit. I did not see anything else remotely resembling a service vehicle. Perhaps they bought a cheapy secondhand ? John|

|Strange title... Anyway, I thought I had seen a note about the Galaxies with Metrobus but I cant track it down now. If Ray or anyone has the details, please forward to me (or post them here) and I will get the details logged. I will start with GU05HNA anyway. Cheers.|

|John - will keep my eyes open. Your comments however throw another worm into the can!
GU05HNA is a Ford galaxy but should be fleet number 8916 (based at PH). 9001 should be Ford Connect reg GY53CYJ.
I can't see any SV being earlier than 2003; were your friendly crew drunk?
