  1. Several years ago, I exchanged e-mails with Michael Fyock, who was the Chief of the Woodsboro, MD Fire Department on 9/11/2001. He said that shortly after 9/11 the Mack ladder truck was sold to the former owner of Interstate Mack in Hagerstown, MD. I don't know if he still owns it but there is no doubt that this truck and crew played a big part in one of the most infamous days in U.S. history. It would be nice to see it in a museum. There is a book about the Pentagon on 9/11, "Firefight - Inside the Battle to Save the Pentagon on 9/11" that has a chapter devoted to the exploits of the crew from Woodsboro and Ladder 16. bulldogboy

    Trip up to New Hampshire

    I saw my first Anthem yesterday, it was from Market Basket Supermarkets, a chain in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and moving into Maine. It has had a fleet of Pinnacles for a few years. I've seen a few trucking fleets moving from Mack to other brands, A. Duie Pyle to Freightliners, R & L Carriers to Peterbilts and IHC, Continental Paving to Kenworths, etc. To be fair Continental over the years has used other brands like Volvo, IHC, among others; it probably isn't completely through with Mack. One place where Mack is making a comeback in New Hampshire is fire department tanker chassis. After years of departments moving to IHC, Peterbilt, etc. there are several new Macks around: Windham Tanker 2, 2017 Granite/Rosenbauer, 1500/3000; Rochester Engine 7, 2017 Granite/Toyne, 1500/3000; Dublin Tanker 1, 2017 Granite/KME, 1500/3500; Peterborough Tanker 1, 2015 Granite/KME, 1250/2500; Fitzwilliam Tanker 1, 2008 Granite/Ferrara, 750/2500. It's a start. bulldogboy

    1937 Type 25 E Series Fire Truck

    Not Mont Vernon, NH (no "U"). Mont Vernon Fire Department did have a 1948 Mack Type 45 pumper that it purchased in 1967. It was originally Billerica, MA Fire Department Engine 2. Mack Truck delivery photo. bulldogboy

    1937 Type 25 E Series Fire Truck

    That pump setup looks home made. Did the department buy a commercial chassis and build a fire truck on it? Do you know what department it came from? Nice little rig!! bulldogboy

    AENA says sí to Scania

    I think those Scania P 490s used in Greece and Spain are sharp looking trucks. They seem to look a little different than the typical European style COE. They don't have crew cabs though. Does the extra firefighting manpower arrive in a separate vehicle? bulldogboy

    Ford to run DAKAR 2019 with two 4x4 Cargo trucks

    I think that Ford's plan was to go with the Mustang next year, anyway. Hope that it stops raining in Loudon soon.
  9. When I see all your Mack photos from the museum I think that it's a shame that the FDNY Super Pumper and Tender didn't end up there. They certainly were a one of a kind Mack product. bulldogboy

    New 17 year old fire truck?

    Mack/Master Body Works trucks were built for the California Division of Forestry. I wonder what the reason was why it was never put into service, a training vehicle, maybe? Mack "Team Manager" chassis. bulldogboy

    Craigslist Mack

    Nice to hear that it has been saved and not too far away. Along with Ayer & Goss Oil Company and Skip McKean Transportation, Henniker seems to have quite a few antique Macks. According to McKean, "The Only Henniker On Earth". bulldogboy

    I saw a Mack "Freedom" (smaller version) in Merrimack, NH on Friday, 6/1/2018. Travelling in opposite directions so I couldn't get a photo. bulldogboy
