WEEKEND SUNSHINE JULY 8th & 9th.
On a lovely sunny day two pairs of Shelvokes are pictured several hundred miles apart. On the left two PN’s were photographed by Tommy Moore at Kilmarnock parked up for lunch as they participated in the Ayrshire Road Run. On the right two SPV WX Fire appliances are being admired at the Fire Show at Lullingstone Castle in Kent where they were photographed by Rus Attree.
For the Ayshire Road Run Peter Johnston had brought his PN with a Norba K70 body and now in the livery of Belfast City Council over from Northern Ireland to Scotland. Perter is shown below with his vehicle.
It was joined by Michael Copper’s PN Revopak which was another one of the three rescued from Magees Haulage on the Isle of Man. The road run taking place over two days is very popular with drivers and Tommy Moore who drove Peter’s PN commented that it is : “A super little lorry.”
The Fire Show at Lullingstone Castle, Eynsford, Kent was in its fourth year and Chris Shelley Houghton and Terry Prince took their fire appliances. Chris’s is Reg. No. GYW 614 W and is a pump ladder, whilst Terry’s YHV 187 T is a pump escape, both being ex-London Fire Brigade. Terry also owns two further Shelvoke appliances. Darren Perry sent in some lovely photos from the two days.
