Your right Dennis the Wagon was called "The Duke" .

Dennis Michaliga Ha Ha. That's funny. I do recall The Duke also. Seems like every few years as shifts change their make up, the apparatus gets a new moniker. I see on the station patch it has Little River Express. I remember when I was the driver at 28 and we called W28 the Sleepy Hollow Express. Then there was the Rocket at E24. Hey???? do you think the youngsters who read this site know what we're talking about when we don't use the "4" in front of stuff??? LOL. 3 years ago

I believe the lime green Seagrave in the historical photos was named "Mean Joe Green" I remember Ben Dawson beating us into 8's first due many a time .........

Jack Markham My brother Steve drove MEAN JOE GREEN while at C0-23, and bragged about it all the time. 3 years ago

I was assigned to 16 and my first day in the station I was detailed to 23. Rode the back step. First call I ever went on was to Pickett SC. Was almost thrown off the rear step!!!! I recall it was an open cab pumper. Can't remember if it was a Seagrave or ALF.

Jack Markham To my recollection, Annandale never had any OPEN cab Seagraves, only American LaFrances with open cabs. 3 years ago

Dennis Michaliga I think you're right. It was my first exposure to the paid volunteer thing too. A volunteer came in that night and the shift LT had to ride the bucket. You could have fried an egg on his forehead.. I remember a closed cab ALF at 8 that ran as the Eng. It had the mechanical siren mounted on the driver's door and Fitzgerald would wind that thing up!!!!! It's why my hearing in my left ear is jacked up..... 3 years ago
