Pictured are the steamer crews from the Charlotte and Raleigh fire departments, who demonstrated on Saturday their 1902 American (CFD) and 1905 American LaFrance (RFD) steam engines, respectfully, as part of the South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo.

Shown left to right are Capt. Robbie Myers (CFD) Capt. Michael Ezzell (RFD), Engineer Jeff Dixon (CFD), Lt. Patrick Murphy (RFD), Capt. Buddy Caldwell (CFD), and Battalion Chief Shane Nantz (CFD). Not pictured is Asst. Chief Bert Richards (RFD).

Photos and even a couple short videos from Mike Legeros are forthcoming. Here's a story in today's News & Observer about the antique apparatus demonstrations, which also included Charlotte's 1866 hand engine. Was an exciting, educational afternoon. Click to enlarge:
