Role-related lettering is very rare on tube liveried vehicles, exceptions being the Staff Welfare vans and a lone 'cleaning' van. I caught a glimpse of a van with this 'Plant Services Mobile Maintenance Unit' lettering at Lillie Bridge in spring 2010, but was unable to see its identity. However, when we got a fleetlist soon afterwards, two slightly non-standard vans were evident. 6858F and 6859F were both based on the more powerful 140 T350 Ford Transit, and were registered in Yorkshire. Most of the Staff Welfare vans were also registered in Yorkshire, having been converted by Clarks of Doncaster. I assumed that the two new vans were also some sort of conversion, but they proved to be elusive. Finally, on 13th December 2010, Ray caught one of the pair leaving Hainault Depot. Apart from the lettering it does appear to be a standard Ford Transit van. The pair are most likely based at Lillie Bridge and Ruislip depots.
