The 1955 Seagrave at Central.  This station was home to this engine for many years, both as "Co. No. 1" and as a Reserve Engine. 
In this particular picture, the '55 is a reserve and is filling in as "No. 1."  (The '66 La France was off the track.  Note the '47 Seagrave
Ladder Truck in the far right bay.  Note Rescue 19 in the far left bay.  It was a white Chevrolet. This rescue was replaced in 1990 by a 1990
Ford Diesel powered light rescue, and in 2001 by a Heavy Rescue - a Freightliner/E-One.
