Big and positive changes at the Pattaya Station!
I can remember the few old rusty engines, back in 1993!

Now these are a couple of really serious aerials! No one can claim that this is a Third World fire service.

I am not sure there is a fire station anywhere in north America or Europe which has anything to rival these beauties... Any suggestions?

Rob, I have a picture of something even BIGGER than these that was based at the Bangkok Marine Fire Brigade and Rescue Station! It'll make your eyes water!!
