Engine 3 is a 1932 Seagrave Engine. Engine 3 is the oldest unit owned by the PLFD and is housed at Station 1 for display and is used during parades. Engine 3 was used up until the 1973 Ward LaFrance Engine was placed into service. Engine 3 had well over 40 years of active service. When station 3 closed in the summer of 1973 this unit was forgotten about until earlier this year when the chief and department reopened station 3. She was found to be in excellent shape and was moved to Station 1.
I like the story of this truck. The truck is okay. It doesn't say Seagrave to me. The cowling it too short and it looks like a nice but generic antique. Don't get me wrong. It is nice little truck but when you shoot for a specific model you need to hit the mark. Based upon your modern trucks I think that you can build a better antique than this one. You modern trucks are nice. The Seagraves look like Seagraves and there is no mistaking the Ward LaFrance. I think that that one is the best of your trucks so far. I look forward to seeing more of your trucks. Keep up the good work!
