From a reader, here's a neat photo of a 1972 American LaFrance 1000 Series pumper and a 1972 Detroit Edison U30C locomotion. The fire engine formerly served Forest Hill, TX, and is privately owned by a collector. The train engine, located in Grandview, MO, was cosmetically restored earlier this year. The photo was taken the night before the latter was scrapped. Read about the restoration. Photo credit to LaFrance owner Anthony Motta in Greenwood, MO. Great shot, they both look like toys. And, really, isn't that where it can start, for both kinds of firemen? Click to enlarge:
