I feel sure that all visitors to the site will join me in sending good wishes to all at TVAC as the company this year celebrates its 10th anniversary of building fire engines.
As ever, I remain very grateful
to the management and staff for their continued help and support in allowing
me to bring regular updates to this site.
THURSDAY 19TH JANUARY 2006
Included for the first time are appliances for
Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service. Also in build is the first
batch of production DAF LFs for Lancashire which should be gracing the
streets of the county in the not too distant future. Work is also
in hand for the various North East brigades.
MONDAY 13TH MARCH 2006
The early Lancashire LFs are nearing completion
and are now identifiable by their registration plates. The
appliances for Northumberland, Durham and Cleveland are progressing well,
to round off this particular visit.
