12/24/11 86 W, 1 I - + 6 - 4 Troy Fire Department Circa 1976

Among the features of the recent redesign of FireNews.net is a new section of historical images. Below is the Troy Fire Department circa 1976. Look at those beauties! Double Macks, one CF and one B series L series. Couple Ford C series, maybe pumper-tankers? What do you think, town and rural trucks? Looking at their web site, it appears that station building shown is still being used. Be sure to see the other old photos posted on FireNews.

Correction, Blog 100. That is not a Mack B, rather it is a Mack L, like RFDs 1950 Mack. B models have the headlights built into the front fenders, rather than separate housings, like on the L model pictured.

Mike, im surprised you have a post of this being this is a nearby town to my home town of Mt. Gilead Montgomery county NC. This is a town and county FD. And yes the station is still being currently used infact it has recently been renovated

This is Steve Tedder and I sent in the photos. We recently celebrated our 100th anniversary and this pic was sent to us by a former member now living in Califoria. The nearest C series Ford was owned by the County of Montgomery and was used as a rural truck 750GPM/1200Gal. It was the 7th truck bought by the County for rural firefighting. Look closely and you can see that it is lettered Mountgomery Co Fire Dept. The fartherest C cab is Montgomery Co Fire Dept’s 5th truck bought. 750GPM/500 gal. Any ?‘s about Montgomery Co trucks ,send me an email. As Aaron stated ,go to Troy Fire Department on Facebook and look in the album Motgomery Co fire trucks. I have pics of allCounty owned trucks excepyt for 2.Thanks…Steve
