Details: 3150L was a Freight Rover Sherpa van new in late 1983 and featuring the revised design with square headlamps (see 3150L's first appearance on LTSV way back in 2004 for a side-by-side comparison with the earlier design). London Transport bought or leased 73 Sherpas between the late-1970s and mid-1980s, followed by just one example of the Leyland-DAF version in 1992. The type was perhaps unique in coming in a couple of sizes where the width as well as the length were changed. As a result, 300 and 400 series Sherpas appeared to retain the same proportions as the original 200 series. Most of LT's Sherpas were 200 series, and many of them were used by the Cleaning Services department. 3150L was assigned to the general-purpose 'Group 3' fleet and was based at Chiswick Works. When seen visiting Enfield Garage in the snow of February 1987, it had had its London Transport fleetname removed but retained the 'Distribution Services Manager' lettering. It was withdrawn a year later.
