This is a old Dutch appliance. Does anyone has a idea from which brigade ??

Added by Marcel on 21 November 2007.
Marcel there were about 200 Mercedes-Benz Ecoliners 1117 in the Netherlands.
111 built by Doeschot-Rosenbauer (which one of them being an RT the other 110 a pump) and 5 by Rosenbauer Holland (formerly Kronenburg)
So now only to find out which ones are still operational and which ones have been gone ; )

I was fireman here in Cuba, in havana city we have a few Mercedes Benz, 2 in the Unit # 1 in Old Havana (M1 and M2 (The truck of the picture)), 1 in the Unit # 5 in Vedado (M5), 1 in the Unit # 8 in Playa (M8), 1 in the Unit # 10 in Guanabacoa (M10), 1 in the Unit # 17 in the UCI (M17), 1 in the Unit # 25 in San Miguel Del Padron (M25). I think we only have 2 1117 Mercedes Benz Econoliner; the M2 (the one of the picture) and the M5; the rest are Magirus, Zil 130, Peugeot, Dennis, Rosembauer, Iveco, Freightliner, Pegaso, Nissan, Kamaz, International, Oshkosh and others.
