Raleigh Fire Museum members are assisted by fire department personnel in May 2012, as they receive a 1961 American LaFrance 900 Series pumper that once served the city. The engine was purchased from a private owner, using money donated by active and retired RFD members. It was placed in service as Engine 1 in May 1961, as Engine 8 in 1974, and likely removed from service in 1982. It was sold to the Stem FD in Granville County, and subsequently to a private owner. Jan Chamblee photographs from May 10 and May 11, plus side-by-side shots from Dean Narron, and older photos from Tim Henshaw (2009) and Lee Wilson (1990).
