Details: Additions to the owned fleet were few and far between for much of the late 1990s and early 2000s. With a number of vehicles presumably due for replacement soon, two new lorries arrived in Autumn 2005. These were based on the Iveco EuroCargo model, an updated version of the Iveco/Ford Cargo and SuperCargo, and included refuse truck 2586 seen here at Barking Station on 6th October 2005. While earlier Cargo lorries had been dual badged and numbered with an F suffix, the new examples were pure Ivecos. Could this be why they carry un-suffixed fleetnumbers? As an aside, the I suffix was used for a pair of Fiat Ducato vans in the mid-1980s. Iveco is the truck and bus division of Fiat so this suffix could have been reused.
