Beautiful shots sir. Any idea where one could find any shots of the old tractor drawn tillers? I remember them as a kid, with the wooden cab roofs.

YES, THEY HAD A 1971 PIERCE 85' SNORKEL UNTIL 1980.  THERE WERE 2 OF THEM 6 AND 18. I BELIEVE SNORKEL 6 WENT TO 5'S IN 1980,AND 18'S WENT TO 28 IN 84 WHEN THE TOWER LADDERS WENT INTO SERVICE.
