A great weather day, good turnout of rigs/spectators.
1.Almost 20 rigs lined up to draft.
2. This 1979 Chevy K-30/Seagrave mini from Steel City, PA. is an example of the smaller rigs being favored by some collectors.
3. The 1951 Ford/American 500 gpm pumper at far right; x-Shepherdstown,WV, and Graceham,MD. blasted out a mighty stream.

You know you are getting old when many of the rigs at a muster are younger than you. ;)

Hahn was the theme for this muster, with at least 6 examples on hand.
1941 Hahn 500gpm from Westmont,NJ.
1974 Hahn 1000/500 from Dunellen,NJ. Last open-cab Hahn?

looks like a great location for a muster. Really nice photos. If I were a betting man I would have said that we (in Cincinnat) photographed the only Kalamazoo/Scat at a muster on June 7th!

Box 2565 failed to mention that there was a second SCAT at the Cincinnati Muster that was a twin to the one at Westminster, but unrestored and pretty rough.

Thanks for comments, those little industrial rigs are catching on, same as brush and mini rigs.
Here are some more pics, of rigs that are not "traditional" muster rigs.
This is a 1988 Pierce Arrow 1000/750/100, xUS Navy, has a interesting door decal.
I always thought the Pierce Arrow was as good as it got for Pierce custom jobs.

IMO, this is half of an antique, as a 1957 Ford chassis is certainly antique, but the flat bed/skid unit is not.
From Edgecomb, Lincoln County, Maine.
Wonder if this had a neat original body?
When you think of all the custom rigs, rusting away or being scrapped, ya gotta wonder...

Probably the most unique color scheme seen that day;
1979 HAHN/1993 RD Murray 1250/1000
x-Port Norris,NJ, now in private hands

I had more photos, but it appears interest has waned quickly; perhaps SPAAMFAA's Enjine!Enjine! editor is right about the lack of interest in the annual muster issue. (or is it just musters in general?)

I second that! A lot of these manufacturers I can't go see anywhere near me and don't have the means to travel far. I could look at vintage trucks like this all day and this is one of the few places to do so.

Maxim F pumper, all shiny in parade, then with muddy tires after extraction from mudholes.
If anyone has additional info about any of these, please add! I had to shoot quick and move on.

The Edgecomb, Maine Fire Department website shows the '57 Ford but after it was sold. The owner was seeking information about the truck. Looks
like it was sporting a Maryland license plate. Please keep the muster photos coming; especially any and all Macks.
