This 1975 Mack CF began it's career as FDNY Engine 82, and was moved throughout the FDNY to serve in a slew different houses. Since it's departure from the FDNY it served as Rescue 59 with the Lower Swatara FD for over 20 years before being replaced. The piece was sold to a department in Loudoun County, Kentucky who after a short time sold it again to a collector in New York.

A little over a year ago the rescue was purchased again and brought back to Pennsylvania by a collector with close ties to the rig and the FDLS. The piece is currently being restored, and maintained just miles from where it once served.
