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 Christchurch City Council
Shown elsewhere on this site when it was allocated to the Brooklands volunteer brigade, this 2011 Hino GT8JHKA was built for the Christchurch City Council by Mills Tui. It is now based at the Bottle Lake Forest rural fire depot where it was photographed in April 2013 following a major fire on the Port Hills in Christchurch. An identical tanker also completed by Mills Tui but in 2009 is owned by the Council and allocated to the Little River brigade.
