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

New Zealand Hino - NO173
This 1989 GT11-18 was allocated to the Burnham Army Camp & is shown on loan to the NZ Fire Service in Christchurch. The Burnham Camp retains three of these appliances and they are frequently called upon during the summer during large fire events. This example was subsequently sold to the Far North District Council who repainted it yellow & allocated it to the Houhora rural fire party.
