The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

FDNY Engine 2
FDNY Eng 2 is a 1954 Mack Model L that was in service with the Aberdeen, Maryland, USA fire department until 1989. It is in use by FDNY as a caisson for members who are not LODD but who have given many years of devoted service even after they have retired. This FF was a VERY active member with the Fire Family Transport Foundation whose purpose is to transport family members of LODI to hospitals or to wakes and funerals if that is the need. See http://www.firefamilytransport.org/
FDNY Eng 343 served as Engine 53 behind Ladder 43.
