Engine 33-13 from pump house astern, the sag is evident which is a builder defect. I semi-affectionately call her the "American LaFreightliner". Anyone that knows anything about American LaFrance in the 1990's will know why.

Engine 33-13 backing in after a call. The other guy standing there and myself missed the engine and were picked up by Squad 33 which had to pass Station 1 on its way to scene from her home at Station 2

Like her successor, the City of Keyser bought it for us. She was taken out of service in early 2004 when the new 33-50 was put in service and stored in our auxiliary bulding, nicknamed the Green Building because of its colour, for about a year then until February or March of this year was parked at the city sewage treatment plant, where it was sold years ago to a neighbouring fire department for $1 but they were unable to take delivery of it at the time. In February some members of my company were approached and asked to restore it, which led her to being parked at Station 2 and is now under restoration.
