The first Scania fire engine I've seen with the "new" front. I was wondering how brigades would cope with the large plastic grill section - would they paint it or would it get left unpainted. What's interesting is how they've painted it mostly red and then, perhaps because they had to paint it anyway, thought they'd paint the top of it, underneath where the Scania badge is. I don't ever recall seeing an old-fronted Scania engine with the platic underneath the Scania badge painted - I think it looks much better being painted. It will be interesting to see how other brigades cope with the big plastic grill.
It's a real clash of styles with the livery on the side, can't say I'm too keen on that!

I'm not too sure I like this style of livery. With the batterburg on the lockers and the white on the cab.

I agree. This livery looks like it belongs on two different vehicles. Very confusing!

Interestingly this Scania is registered RX06 BTZ, but carries Worthing Station plates. Iknow some West Sussex 53/04 plate Scanias(the initial batch) were re-registered from RX53 plates before delivery to HX series registrations, and I have a note that HX06 GMO was initially registered RX06 BTZ, but thought it was re-registered before going on the run as the 2nd WTL at Worthing, so what was going on here in this picture - training/ testing? Looks like a MK1 Rapier behind, but Worthing didn't have a MK1 Rapier as 3rd WTL in 2006.

HX06 GMO and HX06 OMH are still going strong at Worthing as 2nd & 3rd WTLs, but are due to be replaced next year.
