Bob and Jim, lt's now Central Auto Recyclers on Basin St off Hall St and there is still some old stuff in the yard. And Cohen Steel Supply is next door.......Hippy

 

 

Hippy-keep your eyes peeled for those red, white and green trucks-but I'm dreaming-after all this time I'm sure they are Chinese steel!

Nashua, NH Fire Department used to run this 1947 Mack "L-85F", 750/200, as Engine 4.

Didn't that end up somewhere in NJ?

Nashua sold it in 1974. I don't know the timeline but eventually it ended up in Londonderry, NH where the firefighters' association rehabbed it and lettered for Londonderry. I guess they wanted to use

it for parades, etc. but I never saw it around. Several years ago I saw it for sale on "E-bay". It was in Barre, MA at the time, the owner also had a Mack "B-21F" for sale. If it's in NJ, I'm glad to hear that it is 

still around, It was a classic Mack fire truck.

East Conway, NH Fire Department once operated this Mack "B-42" chassis fire truck as Engine 13E2.  The body looks like either a Moody or Farrar. It looks like it might have had a front mount pump but ECFD says it was a 1000 GPM side mounted pump (must be inside the compartment). The truck was privately owned when I took this picture in 1999.

Nice to hear. I thought I saw at one time or another Continental pavings scrap yard and it was loaded with old iron Macks. I think it may have been a you tube video.
