Reserve Engine 504
Reserve Engine 504 is one of four reserve engines that serve Castle Beach.
About this creation


This apparatus was the last of four engines to be delivered in late 2006 and served as Engine 3, 203, and 6 prior to being placed in the reserve pool.



Reserve Engine 504 was one of the first engines to feature the full height roll up compartments on both sides of the apparatus.



Opened compartments reveal space for firefighting tools and equipment.



Up until 2014, the hosebed remained open. The hosebed stores a combination of 4” large diameter hose, 2.5” attack hose, and 1.75” attack hose.



The electronic ladder rack was specified for several orders; however, it was phased out as it required additional time and space to deploy properly. The ground ladders are now kept in an interior compartment.



The deployed ladder rack holds a 24 ft extension ladder a hard suction hose, and a pike pole.



Officer’s side compartments store firefighting tools, extra SCBAs, and medical equipment.



Officer’s side of the pump shows several discharges and an intake.



RE504 is housed at Station 2.








Reserve Engine 504 is part of the first batch of engines that received full height roll up compartments on both sides of the rig. Originally the last of four engines delivered in 2006, RE504 saw action at Station 3 and 6 before being transitioned to a reserve role in 2014. Two of the four engines were donated to a department in Mexico, while the other also became a reserve engine. Unfortunately, that engine was totaled when it was a drunk driver hit the fire truck as it blocked a scene on the Interstate. RE504 is housed at Station 2 along with RE503 and RT502

Quoting Sven ;o) You're welcome my good friend. Yes, that's a great idea. That's one of the reasons why I built the CalFire HME. To design something completely different. I love my FDNY rigs, but they do look the same in most cases.
That's the same reasoning why I branched out to having other smaller departments. I love the fact that I can have different color schemes and also not be restricted to the rig specifications for CBFD lol

Quoting Sven ;o) Okay, this is clearly the new and fabulous 504 :) I think this is my fav now.
Thanks Sven! Although my department has many elements based off LAFD, I wanted my department to be unique at the same time. Hence, I moved to varying the manufacturers, rig deployment strategies, etc.
