New London Firefighters Association (WI) Welcome 1934 Fire Apparatus

The New London Firefighters Association officially welcomed back a piece of its history, reports waupacanow.com.

The 1934 Buffalo Fire Engine had not been operable for the past four years after its Hercules motor suffered a cracked engine block, busted crank and scored pistons.

The New London Firefighters Association purchased the truck from the city after it was taken out of service and placed in a storage shed. In the late 1960s, early ‘70s, the city was going to sell the inoperable truck as scrap when the Firefighters Association stepped in and purchased it.
