Not surprisingly, it has a California license plate. Crown Coach was a California company and most of their fire trucks were sold in the State. They were easily recognizable because of their unique vertically-stacked quad headlights.

Hi Anders , its a long storey so I will cut it short , I am a firefighter at Blairgowrie fire station and was introduced to an american firefighter from pleasanton california at an event and became friends , the two towns became twin towns and I was responsible for bringing it to scotland with a lot of help from oocs the frieght company and the rotary club , I imported it through the fire services charity to save import tax which restricted usage to educational use only for some years and now its used to go to shows and fetes , outdoor activities and we have even used it for a wedding !! it has been in two films and is kept in the condition you see it in by an retired fire fighter Stewart Ramsay , it is tucked away every winter and always starts first hit after a 6 mnth slumber , fantastic appliance and made to last -powered reels in 1969!! wow

MGS 590G is its british number which was an age related number , the plate on it in this photo was a film prop and the british number removed for filming, the Crown Coach Company was a bus manufacturer which branched out to fire appliances and they were made in california and were sold mainly on the west coast , one became famous as engine 51 on an american tv series!
