84/96 COLNE

Ancient and Modern meet in this picture of Colne's '1905' station,
with a Ford D600 and Commer HY 352KTF seen side by side.
A picture of the Commer, when less than two years old,
appears on the Padiham library pictures page.

There is something special about finding old Fire Stations still in tact, albeit in use for a different purpose.
The external structure had changed little when this photograph was taken, 14 October 2010.

This is a close up of the plaque on the right hand side of the building.

Karrier 415ATC began life at Colne, but had almost certainly moved on when this picture was taken.

The Commer HY in the previous picture was on the run as a reserve appliance
having been based at Padiham.  Contemporary with that appliance was this
Bedford J5 283LTD which was allocated to Colne, and replaced by the first Ford's to be purchased.
(Copyright details believed to be the late Mike Brockbank.)

Bedford J4 283LTD was part of the driving school fleet and was seen here in Garstang.
