    Some discussion over the years on the forum about the sound of the buckeye. Found an old training video that has it. Near the very end of the video (7 minute mark) Engine 30 is seen responding and you can hear the sound almost drowning out the siren.

    Election night

    I have memories as a kid of the annual election night bonfire,  right there on the middle of my street corner in the Bronx.

    I used to buff E91, 91-2, and L43 in the late 60's, early 1970's, guest of one of the Irishmen in the house who also owned pubs in the Bronx. (If I remember correctly, a case of Shaffer was the price of admission to quarters.) I was there the day the local parish priest blessed 91-2's new R...
