Details: London Country Bus Services (LCBS) used a variety of number ranges on its service vehicles. Those inherited from London Transport either continued with their existing numbers (as with 1148F) or had them modified (for example the lorry ordered by LT as 1578F became LCBS 578F). Other vehicles continued the 5xx series (for larger vehicles) or started a new series at 1 (for smaller vehicles). The latter series eventually became standard for everything except recovery vehicles, though it should be noted that fleetnumbers were sometimes re-used. The main series only got as high as 71F, this being applied to a Ford Transit Mk2b van new in September 1985. 71F was photographed at Northfleet Garage in November 1986, by which time LCBS had been split into four new operating companies. 71F was then owned by London Country South East and, although barely visible in this view, the fleetname had been suitably amended. LCSE later transformed into KentishBus, and this van was given a new livery and fleetnumber as 927.
