82/92 PADIHAM

Commer HY 352KTF was running as Water Tender Escape
when photographed opposite the fire station,
in the days before blue lights and two-tone horns.
11 April 1961.
(My grateful thanks to the Padiham firefighters who very kindly loaned me this picture for use on the site.)

Many of the Commer HYs were replacced in 1969 by Bedford KHs as illustrated by RTF815G.

RTF815G eventually moved to the Isles of Scilly were it was photographed above.
It lasted well into the 1990s before being broken up.
