Crikey a 'K' plate still on the run!!! and I thought we were bad with an 'N' plate for our station. Mind you, prefer the look of the Volvo in comparison to what we have.

Hi Tommy,
We're currently running with a series 3 scanny. The oldest operational, i.e. on the run, machine in L&B's fleet. The shape of our appliance bay dictates the machines that will fit in it unfortunately. As much as am kinda fond of the scanny ( remember them from growing up in Glasgow ), I really like the look of the volvo machines. Seem more fit for purpose.

Hi Stevie i take it you work for L&B ? Do you why your TL S62 ASG was lying at SFR Barrhead fire station last week ? CHEERS.

Added by Tommy Swindle on 27 January 2009.
Hallo Tommy, yeh work with L&B at the only retained station within the city of Edinburgh. Not sure why Crewe Toll's Scanny TL would be through at Barrhead. No-one has said if it has been sold. lol. will try and find out though.

Volvos M335/336 DSU have been taken off the run and have blue lights etc removed and are awaiting disposal at SFR HQ.

Now 'off the run' This appliance is supposed to be going to fire cadets in East Dumbartonshire.

Added by Tommy Swindle on 03 January 2010.
M337 DSU is now now a fire reach appliance based at TO4 Yorkhill. M335/336DSU have gone to a scrap dealer in Alexandria,they are both badly smashed up as they were used for an RTC training exercise

Hi there, am I correct in thinking that Lamlash (K661OUS); Campbeltown (K662OUS) and Garelochhead (K667OUS) are the only K Volvos left on the run?

Added by Iain Middleton on 07 February 2010.

Added by Tommy Swindle on 07 February 2010.
The only Volvos left on the run now are K662OUS at Cambeltown and K667OUS at Garelochhead but the Training School have K664 and K670OUS just now.

K661 & 669OUS and M337DSU are all stripped at workshops and ready to go
