More Old Pictures

I recently recieved these pictures of the Mack running as Engine 9.  Must have been shortly after it was delivered.

Pre-Refurb Photos

I recieved a packet of information from the City of York related to the engine a few weeks ago.  These 2 photos from 7/5/1990 were included of the Mack running as Engine 7 prior to it being refurbished

Pennsylvania Pump Primers 2011

On Friday July 8th I took the day off to get the engine ready for the annual trip to Harrisburg's riverfront park for the PA Pump Primers Muster.  I had bought a new light to replace the modern light bar.  Owen and I got this on the truck in the morning.  In addition, we purchased some diamond plate to cover up the rust on the corners of the jump seat.  Late Friday evening we mounted the recently acquired deck gun on the roof.

Bright and early Saturday morning we met the crew at the Yoe Fire Company for the ride up to the Farm Show complex.

After the ride up to Harrisburg we parked and started cleaning up.

After the Parade down to the waterfront we got everything setup and started pumping.

Here are a few You Tube Videos I found from this years parade.
