Cambridgeshire had a love affair with RLs around this time, operating both a unique RL ET and an RL water carrier out of the Cambridge city station as well as several WTs like this one at outlying stations. The ET is on this site, and may be the only full sized 4X4 ET operated by any UK city or county brigade, apart from a few smaller Land-Rovers and old ex-WD Humbers.
