A nice way to get a standard gauge length of fire hose.

I'd give the firefighters a break... and make two assumptions: the emergency dispatchers have called the railroad, and the hose jumpers are there because they're more visible red.

Still, it is pretty funny.

Thanks for the benefit of the doubt, but....after 34 years in the fire service the more likely scenario is...

"Hey, the fire is out and we're just standing by, let's throw the hose ramps down and take a really funny picture!" Knowing the sense of humor of the guys I've worked with, there is a good chance that's what happened.

In the late 70's Safeway had a big warehouse in Richmond that caught fire and Richmond FD had their hoses over the SP tracks but forgot to notify the railroad. End result: many lengths of 4' 8-1/2" hose and a burned-out warehouse.

Get a model of Super Dave in a motorcar launching off the ramps.

Given the style of crossbuck, this is clearly taken overseas somewhere....

I think the consensus is mainland Europe.
