    So it put in around 10 years of front line service?

    Yes. All Engines, Trucks & Rescues are supposed to be limited to 10 years of front line service. I believe they have a fair number of them that are at or over that right now and awaiting new units. I think some of it is due to the switch to KME for the next batch of engines. I heard that there were some delays getting the first unit built for evaluation before the rest are built.

    If I'm not mistaken, this unit spent time as Ladder 105 before moving to 53.

    I think that the KME order is for 30 pumpers the first year, then the rest in the second & third year ?
