Shamrock Ladder Company's ENGINE...
About this creation


Here is a look at Shamrock Ladder Company's 1986 Seagrave Rescue/Engine. This engine was a demo model, and the minifigs of Shamrock was able to procure it for a reasonable price in 1987. The truck features a 1,250 gpm pump, 300 gallon tank, two 30 gallon foam tanks as well as pre connect quick attack lines, supply lines and a hard suction hose. The storage areas contain the standard rescue equipment, such as the jaws of life, thermal imaging camera, axes, shovels, 15 foot ground ladder and a generator.





The minifigs of Shamrock Ladder Company operate from their 1918 double bay firehouse on the cities West side. Today, Shamrock Company is the only remaining fire department on the West side of Ticlaw. Alert Hose Company, which was founded in 1881, disbanded in 1967. Union Engine Company, which was the first company organized with motorized apparatus in the city, was organized in 1921 and reluctantly, the minifigs closed the doors in 1974, after membership dropped to where they couldn't continue to answer calls.
During the roaring 20's, until after the close of the Second World War, Ticlaw boasted around 18 volunteer fire departments, which protected a population well over 30,000 minifigs. As the horse drawn era came to a close and gasoline powered fire apparatus became the standard, each department made the transition to the awkward horseless carriages. It wasn't long that the reliability of the gasoline powered equipment was proven over and over, and slowly fire departments disbanded to the current 8 serving the City of Ticlaw today.

To James Kontoules in response to your nice comment on Shamrock's JOX, it was quite ironic that you should mention such a unit to replace the JOX...Obviously, now knowing that the engine is a older Seagrave, I actually was considering building a Seagrave as a replacement.

It is exactly what it is....the Gold Leaf that sign creators use on fire trucks. I am friends with a fellow in that business and he was working on a fire truck and had a cut out pieces that he couldn't use...
Quoting Zak Overmyer Mind sharing what you use for the gold leaf?

Thanks for the comments!!! The yellow one is Veteran's ALF Rearmount aerial, and to its right, the dark 'spot' is the new 2012 RNT Engine from Ideal Engine Company. You can see other photos from the incident I posted early this morning.
Quoting West Brickwich Volunteer Fire Department Beautiful!!! Just awesome! What kind if vehicle is that all the way at the end of the steet in the last photo? I thought that I could see a lightbar...
