Dear Jean Paul,
Many thanks for this classic Swiss TL.
Sandoz Basel private fire services had the same one.

Lovely looking Swiss TL Jean Paul, thanks for sharing

Note the right hand drive - typical of this vintage of Swiss Saurer. They stuck to RHD because many of their trucks and buses were used in Swiss mountain passes - and seeing the edge of the road was a priority on bends!

Liechtenstein has some similar topography too...
