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

MNL 785 Commer Karrier Gamecock
This unit survives and I believe was one of six delivered new to Northumbria fire service. As far as I know the body was made by 'Alfred Miles'.
Is in a reasonable state but has obviously been left outside before it came to me. Have had the engine running, it purrs. The rest of vehicle needs a complete go through.
Had plans to take of the body and turn put a flat bed and winch on it, until I found out how comparatively rare they are.
