Southern Campbell F.D. purchased this pumper from Highland Heights. I don't know where it may have gone when Southern Campbell sold it. Ed Effron photo.

Could anyone provide information on the red and yellow foam appliance at the rear of the Fostoria engine? Manufacturer? Model? Saw it in use in “Emergency!” S5 E1 “The Stewardess.” Thanks!

Here it is in front of station 6, and the last time I saw her... when trying to buy her. Such a sad way to die, I would much rather see them go to scrap than this.

I think that it came down to specs and spending the money for that additional axle. The front overhang on both of these rigs is bad, but the Silver Hill boom gets there several minutes before the rig! :eek:
