Today was the FIre Engine Rally  & Firematic Swap Meet co-sponsored by the 5-11 Club of Chicago & The Fire Buffs of Illinois at the Chicago Fire Academy. Several private collectors brought apparatus and several pieces of apparatus from the CFD were on hand for visitors. Several vendors had goods for sale and a special treat for many was a visit by an FDNY Seagrave engine that was en route to be delivered in New York City.

Another treat was seeing three engines used to supply water to the old CFD water tower as it flowed three master streams.

Tomorrow, photos from the event will be posted.
