Ex WY Volvo J789 GJX Spotted In Cleckheaton

Posted on May 8, 2009 at 8:12 PM

I was in Cleckheaton yesterday, And was surprised to see an 'Old friend' - Volvo J789 GJX sail past!


I didn't know this machine was privately owned, Or is maybe owned by a local enthusiast?


She was still in full WY colours, And also still had the ladders on!!


I didn't have my camera with me - typical!!


Has anyone else seen J789 about, Or any other 'Oldies'?


Best Regards.

Mark Elliott.

Mark J789GJX is with Ciba , Low Moor, but it is painted white, look at Grahams pictures of it on this site. Could you have seen J788GJX which is YFF cadet pump at Halifax?
