108-637
« on: March 06, 2017, 04:01:39 PM »
Bob Trotter has sold me his fire engine and she has been used to decorate the waste-land we call a garden.

The ARN lists say that there is an archive photo of it in service. Can anyone tell me where I might find this photo?

The plan is to fix the brakes and clutch and get the engine to run and then save for a big shed,

Thanks Wayne,

After I bought it and got it home, a message arrived to say that it is still licenced and would I like to renew it, which I have done  :D

I may seek your help in the future regarding the shape and size of the ladder rack, which is missing, if that is OK with you,

No restoration yet unfortunately  :(

I have a kitchen to finish renovating, which is in its 3rd year; so I have to be content that I have saved it from being made into a beach-buggy, or something equally horrible, for the time being.

Can anyone else access the archives for the photo? Phoenix hasn't replied to my PM,

Phoenix has very kindly sent me a photo of when she was younger I say she, because a friend christened her "Rosie".

Rosie the red Rover sounds good to me.  :D
