Yes Nod Another one of my Fire Trucks!

So, this is the second fire truck I purchased. Her name is Squirt. It's another FMC pumper on a Ford C-8000 chassis with a 10.4L 3208 Caterpillar and Allison trans. This one came from a small town in NC and was put out of service just a few months before I bought it.

The really cool thing about this one is that it has the rear jump seats (Penny doesn't have these...) and people like to go for a ride in the back. This is one I usually use for parades as it is in much better visual condition and can easily hold several people on the mid deck.

Like Penny, everything works including the deck gun (monitor) and will throw a stream of water over 100 ft. when cranked up! However, it doesn't take very long to go through 1000 gallons of water.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Bill, I think you need to purchase (and tune) a diesel railway engine! Then, you'd know the meaning of POWER!

Don't think for a minute that I have considered what it would be like to have my own EMD locomotive. Those massive 567, 645, and 710 series engines are ridiculously huge. And for those who don't know, that 567, 645, and 710 Cubic Inch... PER CYLINDER!

The 16-710G3A used in the mid-'80s GP-60 series locomotives produces 3800 HP and 22,175 Ft.-Lbs. of Torque @ 900 RPM and it totals 11,360 Cubic Inch (186.2 Liters). The generator attached to it produced 2800 Kilowatts. You'll notice the the bogies on the locomotive only have 4 traction axles (2 front and 2 rear) and the locomotive itself has a starting tractive effort of about 98,000 Ft.-Lbs.



Now the 20-710G3C-ES (same displacement) used around 2010 in the SD80AC locomotives produced 5300 HP and 29,300 Ft.-Lbs. of Torque @ 950 RPM. The generator attached to it produced 3900 Kilowatts. On the SD80, you'll notice that the bogies have 6 traction axles (3 front and 3 rear) to handle the increased power output of the prime mover and the locomotive itself has a starting tractive effort of 191,000 Ft.-Lbs.



Anyway, there's your fun facts for today!
