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

. Photographed in July 2013 having been decommissioned and awaiting auction, this was initially a rural fire tanker and then a bulk fire retardant carrier for the South Canterbury rural fire district. The locker section strapped to the deck is from another rural fire tanker that was decommissioned at the same time.
