Boy, the Bronto Sky Lift does get about the world.
And, on vintage cobble-stone paving here.....

And, I must get down to see our nearby Saint John, New Brunswick new E-One Bronto - it cost $ 1.3 Million Canadian ( 860, 000 Euros )

Wow thats interesting, half my family is in Saint John! I'll be there in July, hopefully pop into the fire station. Any photos of NB vehicles?
Small world huh!

David: Yes, it is a small world!

FYI: Believe the E-One Bronto is at Station 1, off King Square - learned of her, from the mechanic at the City Barns, who was working on her, with E-One tech reps, to get her in service.

The Quint [ARP/CARP] is at Station 5, in the North End.

Rothesay Regional Fire Dept., now renamed Kennebacasis Valley Fire Dept, as they serve the towns of Quispamsis & Rothesay on a shared budget; is still spec'ing out their first Aerial - it has to have a low height for the CNR Overpass at Model Farm Road. They checked out Amherst FD, [Nova Scotia] Sutphen Aerial, which fits under a low CNR Overpass there.

Have some NB/NS shots stashed; will sort them and send in, this winter. Currently, have to get the firewood in, and other winter preparations. Could really use Pavel's and BombaBoy's ambient temperatures right now (<;)

Cheers, from Canada, Pat_R-B
