I'm well behind the times but those night shots are really something special Mike, there's not many layouts in G scale where you feel like you could properly be in the photograph and walk down the street!

Ah, the Leeds design Dennis F8. The Dennis F8 was a very compact machine, only 2m wide and so ideal for rural areas and the narrow streets of industrial towns. The Leeds version was a unique design with access to the rear seats in the cab from the back of the machine. Maybe this made access and exit easier and quicker in narrow streets or lanes because there were no rear doors to get in the way.

the design of that truck reminds me to the still used firetruck of our neighbouring firebrigade here in paraguay.
that is a "Green Devil" from your armed forces in the fifties.
(some might remember, that i was asking about sparkplugs for that beast, some years ago)

I still reckon the street name's wrong - should be Penny Lane :nod::nod:

Penny Lane, there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine
