For 21 years, from 1951 to 1972, it faithfully served the Mahoning Valley Fire Company.
In that span, it hardly missed a call. It battled all types of fires, from brush to barns.
Then it was put into retirement, placed in a bay of the Mahoning Valley fire station, and has been sitting here for 42 years.
It seemed its days of usage had permanently ended.
The 1936 Hahn fire engine, rusting and with few working parts, has been transported to the Carbon County Career and Technical Institute, where it is getting a complete makeover.
