I've absolutely no idea why it was there but this is the first time I've seen that particular LT livery on a 20. It's a glorious livery and I hope Farish produce it as I'd happily buy one.

Here are some pictures (not mine) from someone I follow on Twitter, I hope the link works:

Thanks for the picture link, it worked fine! I think it does look great in that nicely lined out livery......I was right, it is 20 142! I did read somewhere that it has only fairly recently been painted, thank you.

That actually looks good - far better than the Farish 'Underground' one IMO

Went through Clapham about 7am today (Sat) it's still there, they've put it in the shed now though.

I beleive it is being used to shunt SWT's new EMU carriages about the depot (Class 707).
They are due to enter service sometime "soon".

Aha! That makes sense, thanks Jason.

No. The website states June/July but not which year ;)

Two 707 units in Clapham yard this morning, that would strengthen that theory!
