The City Of Milwaukee #40015 is a 1981 model, one of the last FWD's purchased by the city. These shots were taken in Aug. 2005. At the time I was informed that it was due to be retired at the end of the month. However I saw it in service in October. It was long relegated to back up service by this time. I had seen it when it was quite new and then never saw it again for maybe 22 - 24 years when I ran across it parked behind the main shop building, away from normal street view. I was delivering parts to the garage and the normal entrance was blocked by road construction and I had to go in around the building. What a find!

These West Bend, WI Fire Truck (WBFD) pictures were taken in Sept 2005 at a fire equipment show at Oconomowoc, WI. This is a 1953 750 gpm pumper. It is owned by an unnamed private party. It was being displayed by the white-shirted man in photo 01. As I was talking to him, some people asked if it would be okay if they could get cab photos of their kids. He was happy to agree so I have included a cab shot of a rather old kid in photo 03 (yours truly, and it was a thrill). The red paint is ORIGINAL. After West Bend it went to a small town department in "Up north" Wisconsin were it remained in service until 2003 or 2004. The current owner only had to clean it up and repaint the silver areas.
