Found for sale on eBay, these 35mm slide images of vintage Carolina Beach and Wilmington engines. Left to right, top to bottom are a 1953 International/Bean (CBFD E3), a 1976 Ford/Howe (CBFD E2), a 1970 Ford/Howe (CBFD E1), a 1952 Oren (WFD reserve E3), and another 1952 Oren (WFD reserve E4). Absolutely beautiful. Click to enlarge:

Thanks Mike, just bid on these. I’d like to add these to our archives. I’ve got shots of the WFD engines but not slide quality.

Hope you get them Chief. It was hard for me not to bid. I’d like to have the ones of Engine 3 blown up for our wall of flame!

Thanks for pointing them out Mike.
