History of Engine 55 & Ladder 27

Detroit Engine 55 was organized in 1927 at a new station at 18140 Joy Road. This station was built with a second bay for a Ladder (27) that was organized in 1928. in 1927 the Detroit Airport operations begins, skyscrapers are being built downtown as the boom continues. The 1927 station is still an active station with both Engine 55 and Ladder 27. Today Engine 55 is running a 2017 Ferrara Cinder 1500/500 engine. Detroit received 8 of these in 2017, they are in service as engines 30/34/44/50/52/53/55/60. - Joe O'Brien

    Love that Detroit Fire! Very happy l ordered Engine 55. It looked better in real time than it did in the photos. Already have Engine 30, 44, and 50. May have to breakdown and save for the remaining Engine 52. Great job fire replicas. James Phillips

    Detroit Engine 55

    Posted by Mark on 4th Nov 2019

    I am pleased to say that I have all three of the Detroit Apparatus from Fire Replicas. The "In Service" version of the 1937 Seagrave Safety Sedan, Ladder 27 and her station mate Engine 55 which I am about to tell you about. This Replica, like the Safety Sedan and Ladder 27, is absolutely AWESOME. The cab interior has minimal details due to the difficulty to see inside. Still, with the use of a penlight one can see they still took time out to add details. Two of the back jump seats appear to replicate seat mounted SCBAs. The chauffeurs seat and the command seat are separated by the engine cover which sports two yellow flashlights. The forward cab also has two windshield fans and the command side has an in-apparatus laptop computer. On the outside the details are not spared. Grab handles, windshield wipers, and spotlights all appear to scale with the spotlights replicating the LED style lamp. The photo etched grill and the warning light bar, with the bar mounted flood lights, match the real apparatus photos. I could go on and on. The pump body is incredible with scale proportioned outlets and decals representing details on the stainless steel pump panel. The roll up doors seem as though you could raise them. The hose bed includes multiple foam containers and traffic cones. The hose even has manufactures names such as Ponn Supreme along with testing date stamps! On the passenger side the ground ladder mounted with the roof ladder along with the booster line compliment the model. Underbody details are subtle but still important. They include molds to replicate the engine and transmission as well as the realistic muffler with hollow exhaust pipe end with the adapter for the exhaust removal system. Also included are the door step illumination lights under each cab door. I mentioned earlier the cab roof warning lights which are of a unique type (manufacturer unknown to me at this time). This roof light, along with the rear warning lights, taillight array, side warning and flood lights, as well as front headlights and warning lights along with the turn signal are very well replicated and clear with some replicating LED lamps. The graphics on this model are clean, sharp, and exact to the photos of the real apparatus. This is a Must Have Model if you desire a Detroit Fire Truck or Engine. You can't go wrong with this replica.
