Oxford Diecast Fordson Heavy Pump LMS

Oxford Diecast Fordson Heavy Pump LMS

Product Code: 76FHP003


The Fordson 7V Heavy Pump Unit was designed in late 1938 to meet the requirements of the Government’s emergency fire brigade organisation in the period leading up to the onset of World War II.  Based on the standard Fordson 2-ton forward control chassis with Ford’s own 8-cylinder petrol engine, they featured a demountable 800 gallon per minute pump powered by a separate engine. Many hundreds of them were ordered by the Government as part of their standard fire appliance building programme. 

In the same era, the  ‘big four’  Railway Companies all operated comprehensive fire brigades to protect their assets and property.

For our latest release, we see our 1:76 scale Heavy Pump Unit replicating one of the emergency vehicles in service with the London Midland & Scottish Railway, as deployed at the busy port of Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey. Decorated in bright red with superb gold coachlines throughout, our fire appliance ANK 660 displays both LMS graphics and those of the Holyhead Fire Dept.  Note the white LMS Fire wording along the roof ladders, the LMS initials in gold on the cab doors, as well as the colourful London Midland & Scottish Railway Company crest behind the cab windows. This model will certainly add an unusual dimension to the collections of LMS railway enthusiasts as well as a fine addition for those of you who specialise in model fire vehicles in their own right.
