Engine 9 is the busiest engine company in the history of the Jakeland Fire Dept. They have operated first due to the most fires out of all of the engine companies in the City of Jakeland. The Pierce Arrow XT that operated as Engine 9 from 2005 - 2012 has been first due to more fires than any other unit in the history of the Jakeland Fire Dept. Because of all of the history that is with this engine, the departure of this engine is bitter sweet for the members of Engine 9. However the time has come to start a new legacy with a brand new Seagrave engine. This Pierce Arrow XT however still has a fighting spirit. This engine will be reassigned to Engine 12 at the North Jersey University. Now this engine will be "First due to the U!".

In real life, this engine has had a very special place in my heart. Out of all of the original six wide trucks that I first built, this is the only one that remains. I do not have any plans to scrap this rig anytime soon. After I build a new Engine 12, this engine will be placed in reserve. But that will be far down the road in 2013 or 2014.

Matt this is a very nice tribute to Engine 9. Sad to see her go but there comes a time when they need to be replaced. At least you are giving her more time by placing her in service as Engine 12. Can't wait to see what's next.

Quoting Bob K So sad to see E-9 go. I like the shot with E-9 and LTFD E-12....looks like E-12 is on roids. LOL!
I can't believe that photo was taken 4 years ago. Seems like it was just yesterday.

Awesome, I love all the incidents set up, really is something cool to see, I also am shocked to see Lego TWP Engine 9 like that O_o Its just weird I guess. Sad to see such a awesome engine go, but at least its a Seagrave.

This is a great rig and a heart-rending tribute for it. It shows that you have a special relationship to this truck. Great work with this lovely tribute for your E-9.
