This interesting contraption was seen at the New Hope Valley Railway yard, site of this morning's mass casualty drill. Looks built from the remnants of a brush truck. Google finds a couple interesting images of rail-based fire apparatus. Here's a Swiss fire train photo, via Flickr. Here's the product page of a Windhoff firefighting and rescue train. Here's an old photo of a forestry patrol rail car. And here's an old photo of a trolley fire engine that protected Park Point in Duluth, MN. Ring, ring, ring.
