Bedford TK (1977)

Spotted this unusual firetruck at Lyttleton during the earthquake (February 2011) in Christchurch, New Zealand. Speaking with the owner this was on standby duty for the local Fire Brigade. Carries 3600 litres of water and has 4x4 off road capability, apparently it is an ex-Rural fire truck. Still working well from all accounts.
