New engine in Gary

This from Josh Boyajian:

Took a little ride over the border to Gary . Got a shot of one of their new engines. This is Engine 13, a 2012 Sutphen pumper. They have two other new Sutphen engines at Engine 7 and 11. They also have two new ladders which are HME. I attached a small shot of the cab door of New Truck 2.
