This appliance is seen at Wimbledon Fire Station Open Day. It used to be based there but it is now a reserve and is seen here replacing Wimbledon's Mercedes-Benz Econic ALP. This appliance has the registration P463 RHV and has the fleet number HP23.

Apologies for not being able to fit the whole appliance in my camera lens. It was difficult because there was a MAN Incident Response Unit parked right next to it.

What happened to the mercedes alp?

I'm not sure but they had definitely been off the run for a while when this picture was taken in 2008. I think the three '52 reg appliances based at Wimbledon, Hayes and Wembley were having modifications carried out on them.
