I bought this engine from the Worcester Fire Brigade when it was decommissioned. I kept it for few years before selling it to a new owner in Surrey. If you need more information I might be able to find some old files/photographs.

Thanks Philip any history or info on engine would be excellent my father bought this engine in the late 70s and held it until early 90s that was one of the last pictures we took previous to sale.. I'm told it's still in ireland but still can't confirm to be sure.
