Louis, what a great series of preserved Fire Engines, unique to the Netherlands, that you have brought us.

Great photos, neat rigs; and, well-worth seeing - they are dotted from here, onto picture #15630 to picture #15700, so far.... or, look up Louis' name in "Contributors" above.

Thanks, again.

Regards, from Canada,

Dear sir,

The fire engine on te photo is one of four en is still owned by the fire brigade of Hengelo (Gelderland). This one is not only build by Harmsen but also by Herwers, both in Hengelo (Gelderland). The first Bedford QL had a original fuel tank and is used/build for water. The Bedford on the photo is the second one and the watertank is build by GEMS in Vorden. Two other Bedford QL's are also build with watertanks build by GEMS. Those two vehicles was for the fire brigade in Zelhem and the fire brigade in Warnsveld. Sorry for my English.
