Wyvern FB Station A05 Brookhampton
Here we have Wyvern Fire Brigade station A05 Brookhampton. The retained station was built in 1935. The crew are cleaning the station hence the appliances being outside ready for any shouts. Allocation is Bedford TK Carmichael WrL KYC270V although that is off the run at the moment so similar reserve YYD838H is taking its place in this picture. The van in this picture is also on the run at Brookhampton, it's a Ford Anglia 105E Van NYC378E. It looks like the last training night was an RTA extrication drill.
The Bedford TK and Ford Anglia are standard Oxford Diecast models. The now dead taxi is also Oxford Diecast, it was already broken so I chopped the door and roof off for this picture. The Fire Station is a Hornby Scaledale product, it is not made anymore and I was lucky to find one.
