Castle Beach Fire Dept. has taken delivery of this brand new Seagrave Marauder II aerial. Truck 1 is one of three frontline Seagrave TDAs. The other two are at Station 5 (2018 Seagrave MII) and Station 7 (2020 Seagrave Capitol). In keeping with tradition, this apparatus is a tractor drawn aerial, meaning that there are two drivers for this fire truck. Unlike fire engines, this rig does not have a pump or water tank.
Like many of the newer rigs, Truck 1 has chevrons on the bumper to aid with visibility. Additional warning systems include the two sirens, air horns, and multiple lights. Also seen here is the mount for the A-frame gantry.
Something new that I am trying out is the larger wheels. Originally, I planned for this tire and rim combination to be used solely for 4x4 rigs, but I soon realized that the size was perfect for the scale of my rigs. Beginning with the next order, I see myself switching over to these tires... so that means imma clean out Bricklink stores that have them 😂
