M886 RWL returns to its old station
A very welcome visitor to the 2010 Buckingham open day was preserved M886 RWL, making a return to the station where it spent most of its working life. This Renault Midliner/Emergency One rescue pump was new to Gerrards Cross fire station in 1994 and whilst there featured in both the ITV series 'Blues N Twos' and a children's book about fire engines. It served in Buckingham from 1996 to 2002, seeing action during the severe floods of 1998, and was then converted to a WrL and transferred to Chesham. In 2006 it became a reserve appliance for a year before being sold at auction, and is undergoing a gradual restoration back to its rescue pump configuration. It is a credit to the present owners and attracted much attention both from the crews and the public.
