Why the 4 bright lights on the front? They look like the ones you see on trucks in Scandinavia.

Humberside didn't run it with those lights on...It was customised up by sponsors for us so it portrayed the image of the events that we provided cover for at the time, a number of which were the Truckfest series. It was affectionately called 'Little Red Wagon'

I remember this appliance running out of C5 Waltham, as a WrT. Not sure if this was new to them or a hand down appliance. Eventually replaced by one of the two Volvos that Humberside purchased.

I think that these were the first brand new appliances to go on to retained stations and were purchased for that purpose as they were smaller for the confined appliance rooms

Fascinating about E Bay, any more info?
