About this creation

American LaFrance produced 39 of its pioneering Type 5 pumpers in 1910 and 1911. The Type 10 was slightly larger and more powerful. However, few Type 10 pumpers were produced as technology improved and more powerful pumpers were developed over the next few years by American LaFrance. The Type 12 pumpers came into production in 1911-12. These had six cylinder 100 hp and 120 hp engines that could pump an impressive 1000 gpm. By 1914 the Type 15 pumpers could pump 1400 with a 200 hp engine.

The Type 10 stayed in the American LaFrance line up through at least 1917. The Type 10 was used for pumpers, combination hose and chemical cars, hose cars and salvage cars.

The American LaFrance Fire Engine Company Ltd was founded in January 1904. Over the past 107 years the name of the company has changed many times. American LaFrance is one of the oldest names in the fire apparatus industry. Originally, American LaFrance was based in Elmira, New York. The company now operates out of Summerville, South Carolina. Although no longer a dominant force in fire apparatus manufacturing American LaFrance has built more fire apparatus than any other company in the world.

Quoting James Keatley i love this, the BnW photos and wheels just finish it off, i know it sounds odd, but do you build modern pieces at all? and please can you tell me what the part name is for those wheels, they'd be perfect for wheeled escapes on vintage british rigs.
Thanks for the compliment. I build modern apparatus. These are under my account as Engine552 on Brickshelf. The wheels for this rig are part number 2470 - Wheel Wagon Small (27mm ).
