Hi Stewart,

My name is Rick Loudon I organise the Eden Camp Fire and rescue rally at Eden Camp in Malton North Yorkshire, perhaps you would like to bring this appliance to the show next July?

Added by Rick Loudon on 15 November 2007.
Hi Rick,
My mate and I fully intended to bring a couple up to your show this summer, but unfortunately i broke my hand the week before! When i first bought this, i thought that i would be looking at a 12 month restoration, but having stripped the rear end down this week, there are only 3 bits of rotten wood! I am trying to find a local joiner able to make me new posts up using the old ones as patterns. I really do think it will be finished for early spring, so yes i will be bringing it to your show.

Hi Stewart - if you still need a joiner and Rick accepts us I will bring you one (My dad) to Eden Camp :-)

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the offer!! Actually its very nearly finished now. Just aluminium to polish and to get paintwork gleaming Or resprayed if we can't get a good enough finish on the original gelcoat. Due to finances, might not be finished for Eden camp, but will keep trying.

one of the joys of restoration is the 'evolving' comments on the process of restoration, I have absolutly no problem with a 'part finished' vehicle, - I have many of that 'ilk'myself, indeed we have a trophy for the 'most improved' vehicle so it follows if its better after 'year 1' you are in with a chance of winning it. regards Rick

Mmmmm, tempting to bring it as it is then......

Hi Stewert are you in west yorkshire if so i would like to have a look at the appliance some time

Added by Darren Creighton on 29 June 2008.
Hi Darren,
Yes i'm near Huddersfield. That would be no problem.

Hi, the F46 BWX691H was, I think, stationed at Batley from its delivery, where I was stationed from 1969 until 1974. In 1987 I also collected the last F46 in service(?)at Silsden and drove it to Keighley prior to its disposal. It had a really fast run from Silsden (!) - great machines. I also have a couple of very minor items from an F46 cab such as a 'Dennis' clock, the plate showing the gearbox layout and the engraved plate from the bulkhead giving the vehicle's dimensions, If they are of use for your restoration work just let me know.
