  1. a dealership? most likely resell for around 300k+. well thought out rig, too bad the decisions at pcfd haven't been as well thought out.
  2. who bought it and for how much?
  3. thanks for sharing the pics, great job by the photographers.
  4. Isn't the money from Rye Brook half what PC was getting. And that contract comes up for renewal next year. There will be other options considered by Rye Brook.
  5. BINGO !!! Getting a new rig for the current chief's company (engine 60 aka Reliance E&H) was one of the many stupid reasons for the layoff. I truly believe the layoffs will come back to haunt them if not soon, definitely later. BTW, they're using the other paid rig, eng 59, for a spare.
  6. The Fairchester Hose Haulers of the Hudson Valley will be hosting an open house August 12 & 13 from 10am-4pm at Andy Leider's truck house, 2618 Rte. 302, Middletown,NY. See over 200 antique fire apparatus. Like us on Facebook website www.Fairchesterhosehaulers.com
  7. he was the best of the best. lots of broken hearts in the fire service today.
  8. john, what size pump and tank?
  9. Personal pizza at Tarry Lodge, Chef's salad or cheeseburger at Kelly's
  10. It's all B.S created by a bunch of sensationalists. There were volunteer firemen marching alongside their career brethren. More fodder from the so-called printed media.
  11. Anytime is a good time to train.
  12. Both Rye and Mamaroneck Village had/has fireboats in the past. Obviously Rye FD doesn't anymore. Anyone know if MFD still has theirs, and is it in service?
  13. my concern is the lack of a tandem axle. that much less weight distribution, and less braking. its a new model, some departments will jump on it to be "the first one on the block." I'll take a flier on it for a couple of years.
  14. I figured it was Ed's work. The pictures are beautiful, but his work is even better in person.
