i am one of the proud enthusiast of this fire appliance and I have had every thing to do with it since I was 2 years old when it arrived in scotland. just a few things to say, it is actually a 1969 and sadly everybody at the fire station apart from my dad, Stewart Ramsay, don't put anything towards it.

Hi Derek , the fuel cost would be around £1200 so unfortunately not , when I posted this nine years ago I had moved tpo another station but I am back and once again taking an interest in the appliance , its my cousin stewart who is the custodian and a fine job he does too , I go to truckfest with him and a few friends every year and have a weekend of it , his son Drew is now a man and its amazing thinking back to the day my friend now retired captain Walsh said to me , do you fancy a pumper ? then the story began .......
