Hi Chris. N750 (India-3) was displaced at Stranton around August 2006 by the arrival of NY03LJV (as India-2) with R248 in turn becoming the new India-3. N750 then moved onto Headland retained displacing J688 to become the new Hartlepool YFA pump.

N750 was then displaced from Headland (around January 2009) by the arrival of S667 from Redcar.

N750 is currently a reserve pump.

Hi Mark, today I saw this on Acklam Road as a Trainer! (7th April 10) It carried the Driver under Instruction plates and was doing Blue Light training. I presume it has now joined the Training School.

Hi Chris, many thanks for the update. This helps to confirm that the following hand-downs are now in place -

N750 Reserve Pump to Driving School Pump
M226 Driving School Pump to Training School Pump
J689 Training School Pump to Disposed

L679 Reserve Pump to Training School Pump
M227 Training School Pump to YFA Pump (Redcar)
H551 YFA Pump (Redcar) to ??? [but noted in Stockton's yard on 15/03/10]

I'm not sure what the latest is with the other Driving School Pump (L680) as I haven't seen this one about for ages now. I suspect this one may be disposed now too.

Hi all,

H551 is at the workshops, dumped in the corner! It still has "Stockton" on the station allocation plate, also M813 TVN is still a reserve, It was reserve at Skelton on the 22/06/10 - atleast one SS is still on the run .. just!

NL02 OJN is now at Redcar as Delta 1, having moved from Grangetown as Charlie 1

NK10 AZC is now with Grangetown as Charlie 3 and NX08 JYD is Charlie 1

NK10 AZB is operational at Middlesbrough as Alpha 3 and Dennis Sabre NY03 JUF is still hanging in there as Alpha 1

Ex Alpha 3 (NX06 AOC) is moving to Thornaby as Echo 3 making currently E3 (NX06 AOD) as Echo 1. I have no idea where NY03 MGV is moving to from Thornaby. If I am incorrect, just this is what I was told from a firefighter lol

L680 however must have been disposed of, this was fleet number 17 .. the new Alpha 1 (NX10 AZA) has taken on fleet no. 017

I do have some photos to upload sometime soon, of the new Alpha 1, H551 and also NX06 AOC at the workshops being striped of its equipment

Also when I was at workshops, I noticed Saltburns Mike 1 (N746 YAJ) and Yarm (I think) Kilo 3 (P314 HVN) .. I cant be 100% but I am sure P314 had (R1) on the side as its callsign (maybe Reserved now because Yarm is Kilo (K3) and the callsigns only go from Alpha to Oscar)

Anyway, hope this helps..

hi all as of sunday 27 june NX10AZA went on run as A1 at middlesbrough ,making all machines at this station new in 2010 regards ian mc

Hi all

H551 and L679 were dispatched off to the auctions at Washington last Friday (25/6).

DDC1 has apparently been sold to a brigade in Southern Ireland but was still parked in Stockton station this afternoon (29/6). Cleveland are to retain the DDC1 index though.

Reserve M813 is still on the run and is today deputising for L3 at Guisborough.

P314 (ex Loftus) was seen today wearing a "R1" call-sign and N746 (ex Saltburn) was seen today wearing a "R2" call-sign. Both noted in the yard at Training School.

As for the other hand-downs, once NX06 AOE joins Thornaby, NX03 MGV will be off up to Billingham to allow R246 to move to Guisborough. NY03 JUF is currently at workshops awaiting preparation before it's move to Marine from where R247 will move to Skelton.

N750 noted in the yard at workshops today still wearing the driver training plates.

Thank you Ian. Need the Sabres to complete the set.

Added by Andy Middleton on 30 June 2010.
Cheers, Mark .. I couldnt be sure whether P314 was Yarm or Loftus, P313 must be Loftus. As for R247 JNL, it will be good to see it at Skelton! lol

Added by Adam Plumb on 01 July 2010.
They are all Scania WrT P95D with Emergency one body work. They are allocated as follows,

NK10AZC f/n 2 Grangetown C3
NK10AZA f/n 17 Middlesbrough A1
NK10AZB f/n 34 Middlesbrough A3

(from 2010 fleet list)

Added by Chris Hall Teesside UK on 01 July 2010.
Update, Skelton got their new appliance this evening, however it is not R247 JNL it is in fact Middlesbroughs former Alpha 1 (NY03 JUF). Hope this helps.

hi all i purchased H551 NAJ for preservation on wednesday,looks a bit sorry for itself but nothing some tlc wont fix,i was told it was based at marine as well?

Added by Martin Norris on 30 July 2010.
Hey Martin,
I have a photo to upload of H551 from beginning of june 2010 when it was still at workshops .. Shame to see these SS machines being sold, what are your plans for it, keeping it as it is in Cleveland colours? (as it should be! lol) ..

I couldn't help but notice your email address.. are you stripping it into a party engine?

Added by Adam Plumb on 31 July 2010.
Hi adam I'm not I'm keeping it for preservation,I've seen a pic of it back in 1992 and I'm hoping to get it to look somewhere near to that spec.1 of the doors is very bad and there's quite a bit to do but I'm lucky to be blessed with painting facilities.hoping to have it painted and finished by the end of the year.would love to find out more about it,just been told it was a learner vehicle as well at some point.

Added by Martin Norris on 31 July 2010.
Fantastic to hear one of the Cleveland SS's is being preserved.

Added by Pete G on 31 July 2010.
To Martin Norris,

How wonderfull it is to hear that H551NAJ has been acquired for preservation! I've just trawled through my records for some information for you.

New in 1991 my First recoring of it is at Grangetown on 8-10-93, so it was probably new to that station.
Thornaby between 31-1-95 till 31-2-96.
Marine 2-96 till 12-96.
Guisbrough 1997 till 2001
Training school 2001 - 2004, then disposed of. Bear in mind these are my own observations so some of the dates may need tweaking here and there.Would be great also to see some pictures of its restoration on this site. once again well done!

By the way Martin, have a look at my picture of H551NAJ in picture #22200 to see it in 1995 having a wash.

Added by Chris Hall Teesside UK on 31 July 2010.
