Two trucks that you don't often see together. Left is Stony Hill's 1954 Mack B75 pumper, 750 GPM, 750 gallons, originally served Independence, N.J. Placed in service in Wake County in 1974. Right is Raleigh's 2007 Pierce Arrow XT aerial ladder, 105-foot, 1500 GPM, 300 gallons. Ladder 3, housed at Station 17. Photographed at Durham Highway's Public Safety Day, that's underway at Leesville High School. And what a difference direct sunlight makes! Click to enlarge:
 







Many do not realize, but that Mack is “un-restored” and exhibits the original paint. Restoration is in a planning process, but moving slowly. Donations will be graciously accepted!
