    The LA County E-51 Ward LaFrance is beautiful and is exactly like the E-51 as scene on TV. You could not have asked for a better replica. No detail was left off. I am extremely happy with this replica and would encourage any EMERGENCY fan to purchase one.

    Amazing Reproduction of the Emergency! TV Engine

    Posted by Mark Farrow on 2nd Sep 2022

    The level of detail on this model is incredible, faithfully replicates the original as seen on The TV show Emergency! from the 70's. All of the smallest details are included. If you are a fan of the show, then on the 50th anniversary, this model is for you. As always, Fire Replicas display cases just add to the beauty of the display model.
