The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

City Centre fire station
My collection of 1/76 fire appliances is based around a small city fire brigade from the 1950s/60s. Station 1 (Central) is scratch-built from mounting card and covered in brick paper with Downesglaze windows (appliance room doors have been added since this photo was taken). The line-up is AEC pump (Oxford), Dennis pump escape (Highways kit), Leyland turntable ladder (Oxford), Austin salvage tender (Oxford), Bedford heavy pump (Oxford, awaiting conversion into ET), Landrover L4V (Oxford), Austin BA control van (Base).
