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

This 1981 1950C appliance was fitted with a Telesquirt boom as well as having a 700 litre water tank and a Darley pump. It was completed by Wormald and served most of its life with the Queenstown volunteer brigade. It was withdrawn in late 2012 following 31 years of service and donated to the Ferrymead museum where it was photographed in late 2012.
