The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Bedford J5/HCB 4589 PX
4589 PX. One of several Bedford J5/HCB WrT's to enter service with West Sussex Fire Brigade. This one from 1961, went on the run at Steyning and was later transferred to Storrington as a second pump at the retained station. Seen here at this year's Great Dorset Steam Fair in Tarrant Hinton. It was a joy to see her on the bell around the arena.
