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 Scania / Mills Tui
The first of 50 P94DB heavy pumps built for the NZ Fire Service by Mills Tui (another example was built by them for Waiau Pa who are now part of the NZ Fire Service but at the time of delivery were a rural fire party, this was also the only example to receive this simple but in my opinion attractive livery. Delivered in 1997 unfortunately this marking scheme was quickly replaced with the same livery as seen on all other examples (one Auckland example received yellow/black striping but this too was short lived).
