08/29/07 78 W - + 12 - 17 Mystery Seagrave on 401 South

A reader reports that a Seagrave 70th Anniversary engine, open cab and with a Mars light on the radiator, is sitting along Highway 401 south, between Ten Ten and Simpkins Road. It's on the north-bound side. Reportedly faded, and with a sign on the passenger side window. More information as it is investigated. What other old apparatus are sitting out, around here? There's a custom-cab Seagrave sitting on Carpenter Pond Road, north of Raleigh. Ex-Havelock.

As you travel up and down I-95, between Jacksonville and the NC line, the following can be seen (at least they were there in February)-

ALF 900 series 85’ straight ladder, enclosed cab, red
Mack CF series pumper, white
ALF 700 series pumper, enclosed cab, red
Mack CF series pumper, red

And on NC 210, just off of I-40, going towards US 17, is a 1950 or so GMC pumper, looks like an American Fire Apparatus, white, that is steadily rusting away

There’s an ALF mid-mount sitting in a field behind a certain adult establishment off I-95, and south of I-40. Ex-Kinston, I believe. They had two, if memory serves. 700 and 900 series.

And Rocky Mount’s ALF tiller was sitting outside a commercial establishment outside Wilmington, a year or two ago. Still there?
