  • Apparatus Bay

    I was just curious as to what is supposed to be posted in that forum? I looked through it and didn't see an explanation. Sorry if I missed it! Thanks!

    Edit: I do now see that it's mostly law enforcement and fire trucks. Why is it called Apparatus Bay though? (I can be quite thick sometimes....😉)

    The Apparatus Bay is a place for emergency vehicles to be shared - Police, Fire and EMS. Emergency vehicles (specifically fire and EMS ) can be referred to as 'apparatus', hence the name.

      Okay, thanks for the clarification. Appreciate it!

        It does seem a bit odd, perhaps we could petition the boss for a name change

          The boss already acquiesced to the present name at the behest of the primary members of said board... (In other words, I didn't name it)
          The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

          Thank you for your understanding.

              that's one of the things that some of us take for granted- not realizing that other people have absolutely no idea what we are talking about. everybody has their own vocabulary- and it often doesn't mean the same thing to people in the same profession in different parts of the the country. i just saw on the new this morning: they were talking about the US/Mexican border- people didn't know what a "coyote" was...

              whatever you do don't ask a fire guy what a fire "truck" is- you'll get a bunch of different answers...

                Away from the border most would automatically think the wild dog...but yes, "shop talk," nomenclature, semantics - even people speaking the same language in the same room sometimes don't communicate as well as they may believe they do. I believe the term is "Cognitive Dissonance."

                In other words; I realize you believe you understand what you think I said, but how can I be sure what you heard is what I truly meant?

                And the fire guys sound like my proverbial Rabbis...ask 6 Rabbis the same question and get 7 different answers.

                  If I'm remembering right the emergency vehicle section on MCCH was also titled Apparatus, which was later established at Swifty's by the same Moderator, Sammy (Hoseman), who came over to Swifty's and asked to start the new Apparatus Bay after MCCH closed up, I don't think Swifty's had a separate bay for emergency vehicles before that, then of course the Apparatus bay carried on over here at The Diecast Garage.
