Chicago Fire Department history

This fro Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department
1554hrs: Special duty, : E50, 1559hrs: T18, E16, Bn18
Approx 51st Street
Norfolk Railroad Operations complex 3/2/97

This was a fire in a crane unit that moved intermodal containers around. E50 eventually needed to be supplied, so they used T18 (notice the outriggers ­čÖé ) to run a line.

I can’t for the life of me remember how we drove into the yard, but we beat E50 in. We had full access to the incident, and several NS yard employees watched. Now days if you tried this, they’d send a SWAT team after you.
