Ladder 125 used to be quartered with Engine 270 until the early fifties.

L129 was originally quartered with E272 before moving over to Union Street with E273.

My father was assigned to the old Sheepshead Bay firehouse for Engine 246, Engine 327 and Ladder 169.  He used to remember how good it was getting a job and having two engines arriving together and being able to get two lines in operation so quickly.  He would remember that when a box was received, E 246 and E 327 would typically rotate who left quarters first.  If the location was to the right of quarters, E 246 left quarters first.  If it was to the left of quarters, E 327, in their large Ahrens Fox pumper, left first.  I don't know if that reflected assignment cards but it was practical.

Things were different in firehouses with extra companies. 
Having 3 or 4 companies, and sometimes a chief or special unit, in the same quarters made many firehouses cramped - lockers, beds, offices, gyms, TV rooms, kitchens.  The apparatus floor and outside parking lots were filled.  Especially older and smaller firehouses.  Meals were big. Apparatus often had to be moved to let rigs parked behind on the apparatus floor respond.

Speaking of having to move rigs, in the "Walker" era houses the engine usually had to pull out to allow the tillered trucks get out of quarters. ex: whenever L130 was going out on a "truck only" box, 297 had to move out to allow the truck to make the swing into 14th road. Upon return, the truck could back in without the engine moving.

There were a few houses with the engine in front of the truck or rescue that required the engine to drive out to let the truck or rescue out or back into quarters: E68/L49, E76/L22, E65/R1, E210/R2 ;)

Looking at the firehouse bays, it seems likely that tandem parking was necessary in many cases when companies were temporarily doubled up.

What was the intent with 283 Engine's quarters?  Very big house, numerous bays.
