Newcastle & Gateshead - ET - EBB 893C

Here's the N&G ET at the scene of an 8 pump double fatality, British Paints, Portland Road, City.
The only other one that looked anything like this F107 was the Cardiff job - HUH 314D.

Does a British ET carry similar equipment to a North American heavy rescue?

Added by Michael Feldman on 21 January 2011.
It depends on the fire service as to what is carried on ET/RT/SEU/FRU. These units do not usually operate in the same way as North American Heavy Rescues.

With ref to above does anybody know if the Cardiff appliance HUH314D is still about.

Added by Gordon Smith on 21 January 2011.
In a word - "yes" - but the large or "proper" ET such as this is really a dying breed in the UK due to pumps carying more rescue gear. To my mind however, there's no substitute for a real ET.

As regards the Cardiff one, this passed into South Glamorgan - and the last I heard of it it was when it was in use as a FPU/Exhibition Unit with the brigade.

The Cardiff appliance was at one time parked next to house an the A6 in Northants looking in need of some work

FAO Ian, I only asked about the Cardiff ET as I remember some years ago seeing a Dennis ET like the old Newcastle one parked up next to a house in Bedfordshire, I didn't have a camera handy and I believe it was the ex Cardiff machine can anybody confirm this.

HUH 314D was still around in April 2006 when it was seen in a Rushden garden. It looked rather weather worn but largely intact. A photo can be found under 'Dennis' on the CCMV website.

Believe this passed into preservation, sadly now quite forlorn, last seen in the Rushden area of Northamptonshire. There are pics on flickr.

Have a look at picture #26573 on here. It's a shame to see her now.

Added by Andrew Middleton on 23 January 2011.
Are you sure that's the same vehicle? Some spotting details seem to differ -- mirrors, lights/bells/horns, etc.

Added by Mike Feldman on 23 January 2011.
Mike: picture #26573 shows HUH 314D, the ex-Cardif one.
The ex-Newcastle & Gateshead one (EBB 783C) is most certainly in preservation up here, and is in the safe hands of Dr Barry Hutchinson.

Added by Ian Moore on 24 January 2011.
And thank the gods for that, and many of the other fine North East machines he has saved.

Added by Chris Hall Teesside UK on 25 January 2011.
Amen Chris. All the machines he has restored.

Added by Andrew Middleton on 25 January 2011.
It may be worth mentioning that both the N&G and Cardif machines were both sold by the same Dennis rep !

Added by Ian Moore on 25 January 2011.
And if anyone from Oxford Diecast is reading this, how about a model of this fabulous ET in 1/76 scale?
