Canadian AA fire truck

Post by pinesdune » August 9th, 2017, 12:20 pm

Just posting some pics of a nice Canadian AA fire truck at the train museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba, my kids were too interested in the trains to worry about an old fire truck but I grabbed some pics and thought I'd share Image

The las couple pics show the timken differential and the brake cable set up on the heavy Canadian trucks (ps I'm still looking for a good set of gears for that diff lol )

I guess there is no need for a horn when you have a massive siren under it.
That is a great looking fire truck.

Does anyone know if the wood spoke wheels used on Canadian AAs are Lincoln wheels? Lincoln used wheels like this with multiple hub bolts. Henry would never let an oversupply of an item go to waste, as Lincolns in 1929 and later increasingly used wire wheels. Might be worth some future study. Regards, Ed
