    The local bureaucrat, Sternly Hardcase, has ordered the Basic and Mostly Credible R.R. management to provide fire protection in its yard area. As usual, the boys in the shop came thru in the pinch. Spying two of those totally stupid looking fire trucks from a Model Power firehouse project in the scrap heap, they applied copious heaps of kibbled parts including brake wheels from two different scales and extinguishers made from styrene rod and Cal-Scale brake lines. Paint is Testor's Red with some gloss black added to darken it a bit.
