Details: Bedford CALV 1532B was the ambulance allocated to Chiswick Works and it has made several appearances on LTSV already, both during its LT career and in subsequent preservation. This photo was taken at Chiswick and has been included more for the cars in the background. London Transport always had a large fleet of unmarked cars for use by staff. These were listed on their official documents (such as Variation Sheets and Miscellaneous Vehicle Registers), and hence we have a lot of details of their use and allocation. The only missing piece of the puzzle is the livery. Many were in red but it is known that others were in black, white and various colours. MGX925L visible here was a Ford Consul 2000 saloon new in March 1973 and allocated to the Broadway Pool for use by staff at LT's headquarters. Most such cars were only used for a year or two, and MGX925L was withdrawn in autumn 1975. The car alongside is not identifiable but is almost certainly also an LT vehicle. 45 examples of the Morris Marina saloon featured in the fleet between 1971 and 1983, though not all at the same time.
