|Details: Stagecoach South East sent six Ford Transit Connect vans to London in November 2021 to replace an equal number of 2016-vintage Ford Transit Custom vans, the aim being to place vehicles with lower emissions into London service. Interestingly the Transit Connects varied in age with the oldest being only a few months younger than the van it replaced. This was MW66XNV (national fleetnumber 90760) which moved from Ashford to Bromley in exchange for MD16SWO (90797). Aside from being white (instead of red), the replacement vans are considerably smaller than the high-roof vans used before. It remains to be seen whether these are temporary replacements, pending the delivery of new vans. Also of note in this photograph taken at the side entrance to Bromley Garage on 27th November 2021 is that MW66XNV is completely unmarked. Reports (and photographs) of the newer vans now at Bow, Leyton, Romford (North Street) and West Ham would be welcomed. Plumstead and Catford had already gained newer vans in the past couple of years, while (so far) Rainham has continued with its 16-reg Transit Custom. Perhaps they figured that a Rainham vehicle was unlikely to have to enter the Ultra Low Emission Zone of inner London.|
