Rutland-Dundee Donates Engine (update) has an article documenting the arrival of the engine that was donated to the Moonachie Fire Department in Bergen County, NJ by the Rutland-Dundee FPD.

A fire engine from the Rutland-Dundee Fire Company in Gilberts, IL is being donated to the Moonachie Fire Department in Bergen County, NJ after they lost several vehicles during Hurricane Sandy. The engine passed through Bucks County on Wednesday morning where it was unloaded from a train car at an SMS Rail Lines loading dock in Falls Township.

Captains Rich Myers and Jeff Meyer of Rutland-Dundee then drove the 1984 Pierce pumper up to Moonachie, which is about 9 miles northwest of Manhattan.
