| January/February 1999

For many years a tire from an old railroad steam engine was used as a fire alarm in Verbank, New York. No one knows exactly when or why it was removed and to where it was taken. The Union Vale Fire Department is now establishing a memorial park to honor all firemen. We would like to reinstall the old alarm. Any help you could give to find a suitable replacement for the lost tire would be appreciated. The postcard shows the old tire. If you can assist in our search, please contact John J. Farmer Jr., RR #2 Box 110, Verbank, NY 12585. Phone 914-677-8025.
