This was replaced in 1976 by a new Ward custom canopy cab unit with a 500gallon tank, high pressure pump and two hose reels - in addition to a very similar searchlight setup.

It was not actually turned out very often, because it shared quarters with two triple combination engines, which were first and second due(One WLF and one ALF).

But it was Santa Claus's official ride every year and did light up the neighborhoods very nicely when he rode around town in the winter evenings!
