And I live on Anglesey and never seen her. For those who don't know, the terminal on Anglesey closed many years ago the Tank Farm at Rhos Goch was levelled, and the land was considered as a possible location for a new power station due in part to it been alongside a railway line. As far as I know the pipe from Amlwch to Stanlow is still there.

see picture #28336 for this appliance just after it left service. It was registered JJC 867P.

By the way is this the only fire appliance ever built on an AEC Mandator chassis?

Added by Peter Williams on 08 June 2011.
A similar vehicle was built for Shellhaven on an AEC Mandator chassis before this one.

Can anyone confirm the engine spec of this vehicle.As DVLA's records stand it seems to have been fitted the contradiction of a Mercury type engine spec.Rather than the more expected 760.Or maybe even the outside chance that it might have been fitted with an 801 V8.While the former spec would seem to defeat the object of a specialist Mandator chassis order when a Mercury would have been the logical order.

This truck had the AV760 engine, a Mercury wouldn't have had enough power to drive the pump.

Thanks for confirming that Roger.From memory think there were some more of these chassis parked up on the dem ground unused ? when I was working there for a while and I'd made the wrong assumption that they'd be V8's.Probably all the better with the 760.
