Answering the call from collectors, Corgi has brought back the retired models of E-One fire apparatus. The E-One pumper and the E-One 75-foot Ladder are refreshing the Heroes Under Fire line for 2008, and we are happy to welcome them back! - JUST 3 LEFT

I can't wait to order one. However, I will be cutting off the beconray light. It must have been added by the current owner. I owned engine 6, the 55 Pirsch open cab pumper, for 11 years. The 49 Pirsch was not designed for front line service. It was bought to pump at a hydrant during a major downtown or industrial fires. Waukesha FD had a 51 FWD pumper and our 55 as triple combination pumpers. I had only 6,000 miles on the odometer when sold by the Waukesha Fire Dept. You may edit my notes. Regards, John Thomas

I'am very familier with this engine; my father was a member of the Waukesha Fire Dept.from 1941 to 1965.He rode on this engine several times. I myself rode on it in several times.What I can tell from the photo it looks like a very nice model. I plan on getting this model, Thanks for making it available,it brings back a lot of memories.James R. Kruck
