Well there is no TL-17, it is a straight stick and I think your finger got stuck on L-12, maybe L-1

Well just make TL-17 a straight stick. And if and when L-13 goes back in service there will be some major running assignments for L-4, 15, 17, and 26. Still waiting for it to happen.

As a point of historical reference Ladder 17 was the first ladder company in Boston to run a rear-mount. E-One approached Stapleton and offered them a demo for evaluation in 1984. In addition to their busy still district they were dispatched to all second alarms city-wide. Well Leo was impressed, E-One got an initial order for 6 I believe, and it was the beginning of the demise of the tillers in Boston. Yesterday's job showed that Boston could get them into any job, including the cramped North End. All their aerials are E-One's as well as their front-line engine companies.
