Snorkel 3
A 1969 American LaFrance Aerochief 90. This rig is original to Johnstown and has served at each one of the stations. It was rebuilt in 1990, original plans called for a re-chassis onto a Pierce Arrow. However, it was determined to rebuild the existing chassis and cab to keep the classic look.
About this creation

This rig has spent time at both of Johnstown's stations. And has been seen at many of the largest fires in Riverwoods-Johnstown since 1970. It was the front-line truck in Johnstown from delivery until Tower 37 arrived. Although, until 1990, there were two truck companies in Johnstown.


Currently Snorkel 3 serves as the reserve truck for Johnstown and is only staffed on call-backs or if needed mutual aid, in which case, Engine 32's crew will jump on it and take it where needed.


Snorkel 3 operated at the famous 1983 Schnucken's Warehouse fire that burned a 4 square block industrial complex, in addition to several homes in the area. That fire burned for 7 days and went used two complete 5 alarm assignments. There was extensive mutual aid at this fire.


The fiscal plan calls for Snorkel 3 to be kept in operation for another 5 years before a replacement is considered. Tower 37 is due for a replacement sooner, only because it has many more hard miles on it.

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner Great fire truck, full of interesting details. And original and different color scheme compared to most other fire trucks, too. However I agree with Sven - I wouldn't have cut the original wind shield. Why not taking three transparent slopes instead? Anyways, a nice truck!
Thanks Steffen, I am not a huge fan of cutting, but honestly, sometimes that is the best way to get the look, minor modifications. Doing as you said with the slopes really wouldn't look like a windshield. I contemplated it.

Wow, that's an awesome truck! I love the colour scheme, all the details and the cab. The cutted windshield isn't my cup of tea but without this it wouldn't be such a great design. So i can really understand it that you cutted it to get the five wide cab design. Very unique and really nice.
