Details: Photographic coverage of owned vehicles numbered in the 2501-2599 range is pretty good, with a couple of exceptions. The biggest gap is of the ten high-roof Ford Transit vans numbered 2512F to 2521F new in January 1993. The only photos I have of any of these vans were taken either before entry to service or after disposal, so I have never been certain what livery they carried. One of the ten lasted just two months, 2519F being withdrawn in early April 1993, presumably with accident damage. It never worked again. The rest did not last much longer, all being taken out of stock on 6th November 1993. The vans were allocated to LT Advertising at Jamestown Road, and this operation was sold off (and rebranded as TDI), although I thought this took place in August 1994. Sightings suggest that the vans continued in the same work for some years still carrying their fleetnumbers. This is supported by this photo of the former 2512F parked in Streatham Hill (near Brixton bus garage) in February 2002. TDI had been renamed Viacom Outdoor in July 2001 and the van shows the new name, with traces of the TDI lettering towards the front. James has also photographed Ford Escort van 4348F carrying both TDI and Viacom lettering.
