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

US Forest Service Wildland Engine
Soon to be retired, Engine 19 serves in the Angeles National Forest in the mountains east of Los Angeles. Wildland firefighters ride in the compartment at the front of the body. Nearly one hundred of the machines were delivered to National Parks in the western US. The rig is built on a mid-size Ford 4x4 chassis.
