Dennis Emergency Tender 1965
EBB783C was Foxtrot 4, at the Fossway Fire Station (Newcastle East) for many years. Category 4 appliances are Heavy Emergency Tenders and EBB783C was supplied originally to Newcastle and Gateshead Fire Brigade in 1965. The original colour scheme was dark chocolate maroon with bright red lockers and silver coach lining. In 1974 it joined the fleet of the newly formed Tyne and Wear Metropolitan Fire Brigade and changed colour to the standard 'Fire Engine Red'. It is fitted with a ten ton hydraulic winch and a 7.5KW generator. The engine is an AEC AV470 coupled to a 'chinese pattern' Dennis gearbox. This ET was taken off the run in 1984.
