VUP 668F, A Bedford Water Tender. This was the first appliance I ever turned out in. It was at Seaham in 1974 when I was posted there straight from Training school in June of 1974
VUP 934L and CPT 596L . Two Dennis Jaguar engine Dennis appliances that were stationed at N5 Seaham between 1974 and 1977. WPT 389R came brand new to Seaham in October 1977 just prior to the strike of November 1977 and DBR 947S came to Seaham from Durham in 1978. Both appliances remained in service at Seaham until 1984 when they were replaced by the dreaded Bedford Mountain appliances. The two men in the photograph are Ronnie Gustard and Joe Hailes.
