More that come to mind…

Raleigh’s 1922 ALF service truck had its ladder body removed in 1960, for use on a newer service truck. The rest of the vehicle sat outside behind Station 8 before being disposed.
Raleigh’s 1925 ALF pumper sat in Pullen Park for years before being privately purchased and parked outside at Shady Knoll Mobile Home Estates on Highway 64. It was offered for sale again in 1974.
Raleigh’s second 1926 ALF pumper was wrecked on November 14, 1952. One of the injured FFs later died as a result of his injuries.
Raleigh’s 1936 ALF pumper was privately purchased by someone in the area, but sat outside and turned to junk.
Raleigh’s 1939 ALF / 1916 tiller sat outside and rotted behind Station 8 before being disposed in the early 1980s (I believe).
Raleigh’s 1944 (?) Dodge auxiliary truck was wrecked on September 12, 1947. One of the injured FFs never returned to active duty.
One of Raleigh’s 1953 ALF pumpers was privately purchased and is presently in pieces in Burlington. See pic: http://www.legeros.com/ralwake/raleigh/h..
One of Raleigh’s 1950s or 1960s ALF pumpers was reportedly privately purchased and repurposed for competition in tractor pulls.
Raleigh’s 1960 GMC tankers, both of them, went to the Public Works department.
Raleigh’s 1961 ALF aerial ladder was last seen sitting in a farm field in Harnett County.
Raleigh’s 1968 ALF pumper sat outside at the Keeter Training Center until being sold as scrap in the 2002.
One of Raleigh’s three 1986 Chevy brush trucks was wrecked in the 1990s.



Raleigh-Durham Airport’s late 1950s Walter crash truck was parked outside the Durham Museum of Life and Science for a few decades.

Yrac’s yellow 292 went to Brunswick County. Yrac’s 1969 Chevy tanker went to Hoke County. Knightdale’s 1959 Ford/ALF went to Contentnea in Wilson COunty, then was sold to a private owner. Swift Creek’s Chevy/Howe went to Barry’s Cafe. One of WCEMS’ type I units went to Ocracoke.

The old Wendell E113 and B119 are now with a department in rural Granville County. The old L116 is now in-service at Civietown FD (Brunswick Station 9)

Anyone know where the old YRAC 291 Chev/ALF and the Grumman E292 are today?
Jon - 11/26/06 - 22:27

old E292 was sold to Muddy Pond Volunteer Fire Department in TN
CFP 7021 - 11/26/06 - 22:35

Yeah…I would like to know what happened to #291 (the Chevy/ALF). I learned on that truck. I remember when we got the Sterling siren-light (on the fender) hooked back up.
DJ - 11/27/06 - 22:23

291 was the primo truck to ride tailboard on – you just had to keep your shield down to keep the bugs outta your face. In thinking since my inquiry, I think it went up towards Roxboro.
Jon - 11/28/06 - 00:38

Didn’t 291 go to Northwest Harnett F.D.?

Cary’s two twin Pierce Arrow pumpers are at Wade Fire Dept. in Cumberland County.
car3550 - 12/01/06 - 17:15

Eastern Wake/ Knightdale, Back Im guessing in the early 90’s knightdale had a GMC/Chevy topkick Im guessing 90’s model or so. Does anyone know where this went or why they got rid of it?
Adam Brown - 12/02/06 - 18:52

“Cary’s 1988 Pierce platform went to Buies Creek FD.”

and it’s going back or already has gone back to Pierce for a full refurb!
CFP 7021 - 12/02/06 - 22:04

Knightdale Tanker 2 went to W Johnston FD – it wasn’t used often and was replaced with a pumper-tanker
Jon - 12/05/06 - 01:37

I saw the old YRAC 299 this morning on New Bern Avenue pulling a trailer. Looks odd with a white tailgate (it never had one due to the skid unit)
Jon - 12/05/06 - 18:43

Sounds like some of y’all volunteered with YRAC. I would love to know some old stories/history from that department as I volunteer with WWFR but have very littel sense of where the department has come from.
CFP743 - 12/06/06 - 09:15

For starters 743, see http://www.legeros.com/ralwake/wake/hist..
Legeros - 12/06/06 - 09:18
