08/16/12 90 W, 2 I - + 5 - 3 Morrisville's Old Engine Returns Home


This old beauty was returned to the Morrisville Fire Department on Monday, after a period of storage at the town's maintenance facility. Believe the 1963 Chevrolet/Darley 500/500 pumper was Morrisville's first newly-delivered engine, after a military surplus, shop-built pumper that was placed in service when the department was organized in 1955. (During that first decade they also operated a brush truck converted from a military surplus Dodge Power Wagon.) See more photos from Lee Wilson, including it's first washing in some years.
