  • Tailboard Talk October 2019 - Oktoberfest!

    Each month here in the Apparatus Bay we host a session of "Tailboard Talk" where we focus on diecast emergency vehicles (Police, Fire, EMS, or Rescue) with a specific theme.

    This year has flown by and it is already Fall and time for Oktoberfest! So, join us this month for part 1 of "Tailboard Talk" as we celebrate Oktoberfest and honor German heritage by sharing photos and info on German related diecast emergency vehicles.

    Please remember the general rules of thumb:
    • Limit photos to one vehicle at a time (do not show multiple variations of a casting all at once)
    • Once you've posted a pic please wait until another collector has posted before you add another (until the last few days of the month when anything goes).
    This will allow as many people as possible to participate and will prevent this feature from becoming a one man show. Have fun!

    Prost!

        German-related; that includes Austria and Switzerland as well since German is widely spoken in those nations as well? As I already have some photos taken of some Austrian models, for use in a thread I was going to start.

        SIKU Mercedes Sprinter 6x6/Rosenbauer Compact Line. Bears German plates, but is based on a piece of apparatus Rosenbauer typically sells within Austria. "LFB-A" is a fire apparatus classification used within Austria, for apparatus used in mountainous areas. So, the only thing German about it is that it's based on a Mercedes and has German plates; the balance is 100% Austria.

                    Not exactly an ambulance. Panel van casting, passenger interior. But then again, this was a casting Siku used for all sorts of stuff.
