I love the old snorkles. I remember going to one of the City auctions and one of them sold for something like $1200.00. The pneumatics on those things are worth more than that.
I also liked the fact that Station 27 used to be unique as it was the only station with an engine, rescue and truck company. But no more.

Station 16 also had an Engine, Rescue Unit and a Truck. I worked on all three back in the '70's.

I remember my dad working at 27 when they shared a station with 30. We lived in Roebuck down the road from the station and I would always hear them going out on runs. Man...the childhood days...
