West Yorks Volvo in Leeds .

Seen here in the city centre is this 57 plate appliance fitted with that horrid E-One crew cab, thank god North Yorkshire now buy the full Volvo crew cab it makes them slightly better ....

Just out of intrest the 4 58 plates bought by North Yorkshire seem to be having a few problems, at one point both Harrogates were off the run, and around a week or so ago Tadcasters was replaced by an X reg machine whilst the retained crew had a 51 plate, didn't make sense to me why the retanined pump was the newer one .

John thats a nice shot mate, the stories I hear are the same on this batch. Quality control on a lot of items and others, predictably, just not up to the job. The retained lads are dreaming of times long gone, the full timers, well, they don't know what a fire engine is.
