Looks ex-Oxfordshire to me, nice to see old stuff still in use! Thanks

Added by David Sapsford on 22 November 2007.
Yes, it most certainly is an ex-Oxfordshire machine. It looks like one of the batch that were originally C938-941 EJO - all of which went to Malta.

this fire truck has more than you can see...though she done her time in UK and some time at the IFSTS at Hal Far Malta now she is still going at our station..
though the rear structure has been reinforced her time is due.The roads hasn`t helped either..She was always there when we needed her and done her part well.I salute her when she goes down ~LET HER RUST IN PEACE~Enemalta fire fighter

Hi

Just to let you know that this fire engine is to be handed over to us at the Malta Historic Vehicle Trust where it is to be preserved and run at rallies and shows and where it will be joining another Bedford TK HCB Angus (ex Malta Police) appliance which is already in our collection. Please visit us on www.maltahistoricvehicles.com

Thanks and regards

Pretty sure its a TI bedford not a TK , very few were made and now rare as hens whatsits

Added by Alan Ramsay on 03 March 2015.
It was a halfway house. It had a to cab with some to parts such as axles wheels and uprated engines but not chassis .it was produced for those that still wanted a to despite the to being in production since 1980

Alan, Bedford TL's had square headlights set into the bumper - this one doesn't. The indicators are not correct for a TL either - I would say this is a TK

Added by Michael G. on 05 March 2015.
Confusion I think is the wheels and axles are TL , the indicators are aftermarket not TK , the TL chassis was introduced in 1980 and TH production stopped shortly thereafter apart from some which were asked for by certain operators and as TK parts ran out more and more TL parts were introduced , its basically a TL with a TK cab
