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 DZB987
The latest Scania model to enter service with the NZ Fire Service as a heavy pump is the P310. As at the end of 2011 37 examples have been completed by Fraser Fire & Rescue. This was the first to be built and was delivered in 2007 to the Sockburn station as a pump rescue tender. This appliance is about to be replaced & will be reallocated (possibly to the Woolston station to replace their P93M Scania). (photo taken 2008).
