Great photo Brett! The only one I have ever seen of MHN 999 actually at a shout, with a hose line stretched up the ladder for water tower operations.

Unlike the only other Firemaster turntable ladder ever built, this did not have its own front mounted pump behind the faux radiator grille, so a feeder line from another pumper was needed, as illustrated here.

Darlington (fortunately) does not have many ten pump fires - maybe only one every few years. So this is quite a catch!
