Mabas Division 24 Snorkel history

This from Wayne Stuart for #TBT:

Mabas Division 24 at one time or another over the years had the following Snorkels in service, the only one I do not have a photo of is Tinley Park. If anyone has a shot of it feel free to add it in. The Gary rig is the X-South Holland.

In addition to Mike Summa’s photo of the Riverdale Fire Departments FWD engine they also ran this 1965 FWD/Pierce 85′ Snorkel. If you look closely at Mikes photo you can see the boom of this rig inside the station.
