This is a Dinky Toys No 285, Merryweather Marquis Fire Tender. One of the heaviest and possibly most complex models Dinky produced in the seventies, and it came complete with a detachable ladder set, an internal water tank and detachable hose which was stored in a compartment with a hinged lid on the drivers side. The hose could be attached to a small pipe at the rear of the tender, and if the tank was filled, water could actually be pumped using a push button atop the model.
This model was produced between 1974 and 1979.
