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

Changsha Central fire station, China
2 of the 5 Iveco Trakker water tender appliances operated here. It seems the majority of the vehicles are, as you'd expect, domestic made but this particular station (the largest with 14 bays and also the HQ) has all European equipment. Also some very impressive Scania ALPs and a curious huge industrial-type water cannon truck!
