12/07/13 247 W, 2 I - + 5 - 2 UPDATED: Oldest Motor Apparatus in North Carolina?


Question from a reader, what's the oldest (motorized) fire apparatus in North Carolina? Native trucks, that served in our state. From Facebook input and an excellent list at FDmaps.com, here's some of them. Presumed to be triple combinations (chemical engine, pumping engine, hose car) unless otherwise indicated:

TBD: 192_ ALF, Greensboro, High Point

And here's a gallery of some of these. Photo credits are Legeros, Lee Wilson, Benji Grice (wow), Andrew Messer (wow wow), Doug Carter/Rob Mitchell, and Josh Biggs. Click to enlarge:
