Does anyone know of YKP's whereabouts these days? Thanks Mike

Added by Mike Cotton on 24 March 2010.
Sorry Mike I don't know her whereabouts these days. I just thought it might be of interest that I drove/operated her whilst at Brixton in the early 70's when 241 FLM was off the run. A beautiful set of mechanical ladders. 3 clutches, manual training and plumbing. Jimbo.

Nice one Jim - I have some pics of both on the run at Brixton... I'll post them up...

Mike the last I knew YKP is with Brian Waldron Transport of Bromsgrove - he has one or two Leyland Metz' as well -EDV 499 Torquay and VV 7200 Northampton plus I believe the remains of the Brentford and Chiswick appliance

Hello fellas, I note the original caption states the extended bonnet for a Meadows engine. This vehicle has always had an AEC DIESEL ENGINE. The reason for the extended "snout" was the engine was the longer 11.3 6 cylinder as fitted to the military Militants.
Sounds like the vehicle is in good hands.

Added by Mike Hebard on 15 November 2011.
Quite right Mike - thast's exactly why the radiator is thrust forward a little further.
Incidentally, regarding the ex-T&W ET - F843 JBB - I'd forgotten it was yours before Essex got it. I did in fact reply to your last on this, but my message must have got lost in cyberspace.
