About this creation
Engine 56 had a lighting package upgrade in 2003 when a tree branch snapped off and fell on the cab during a storm. The lightbar was ripped off and the windshield cracked.
Station 56 is located on the northwest side of town, in an older part of town with many of what is known a Polish battleship (a three-story, wood/ballon framed, three-flat built around 1900). The neighborhood has also been slowly changing to more impoverished, and slowly 56s have seen their workload increasing. Station 56 isolated by the railroad from the rest of the City. Johnstown has a station on the same side of the tracks, Station 32. The two stations work very closely together.
