Oak Park Seagrave aerial goes to NIPSTA

This from Dan McInerney:

Fyi – Oak Park sold our 1981 Seagrave 100′ to NIPSTA. It was delivered up there last week. It will need several thousand dollars of work to make it “academy ready”.
1981 Seagrave  with a 1,250-gpm  250-gpm Waterous pump with a 300 gallon tank.

Seagrave installed a new aerial ladder on 11-9-1999. It only saw 2 years of in service duty with Oak Park.  Since then it has been in reserve or with River Forest FD.

DH submitted the following:

Saw CC Hills Tower 1145 at Southwest Spring and Alignment on 85th and Columbus (Southwest Highway) in Chicago this morning. A question for the readers, is the ALF 1140 still in service? Or does CC Hills just run 2 engines when 1145 is OOS?
