Details: Do we really need a third photo of an unmarked red Mercedes Vito minibus at Eltham? Well, perhaps. The allocations of several Go-Ahead London minibuses have changed recently, perhaps as a result of the delivery of (at least) 15 new examples. RJ19HSV had been based at Northumberland Park garage since new in April 2019. By the time it was photographed at Eltham on 10th November 2021 it had moved to Orpington. According to the notices in the side windows it is normally assigned to support route R7. Although there are no notices about COVID and facemasks, there is a length of tape on the offside door, as also seen on other minibuses. However, closer examination shows this to be marked with something like 'Compliant Cleaning', so it could be that the tapes are applied to indicate that the vehicle has been cleaned, rather than to prevent the offside passenger door from being used (as was originally thought). Newer Vito WP21YCZ may have also moved recently. New in late August, it was seen at Canning Town in October and in Croydon in November. As always, reports of observations would be welcomed so that we can try and keep up to date with such changes.
