Fire Repli­cas FDNY Tower Lad­ders and Bos­ton E-One En­gines

1:50 | Prices TBD

Com­ing in June are two new sets of rigs for the big-city fire de­part­ments of New York and Bos­ton. The FDNY trucks are Tower Lad­ders—a set of three Sea­grave 75-foot Ae­ri­alscope IIs—the first ever of this spe­cific model for Fire Repli­cas and the first Tower Lad­der of any type in nearly two years. Each model fea­tures more than 850 parts, and each is au­then­tic in graph­ics and ac­ces­sories to the re­spec­tive lad­der com­pa­nies. Fire Repli­cas just signed a new part­ner­ship with Bos­ton, and this pair rep­re­sents the first E-One Ty­phoon Pumpers ever for the Bos­ton Fire Depart­ment. They com­prise more than 450 parts each and are iden­ti­cal—with the ex­cep­tion of the en­gine and shop num­bers, and the li­cense plates, re­flect­ing Bos­ton’s ef­fort to stan­dard­ize its fleet. Both the New York and Bos­ton trucks will be pro­duced in runs of 125 units for each de­sign.
