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

Firemaster at the Duplex fire
Here is another picture of the Darlington Firemaster at work. It was taken at the Duplex garage fire in the 1960’s. The photograph is courtesy of the local newspaper - ‘The Northern Echo’. If you Google ‘Norther Echo Duplex Fire’ there are more pictures of this and other classic fire appliances at work.
