Tophat's introduced our latest impression in 2017. We now can offer a 19th century reproduction Fire Department Hand Pumper "Engine 5" This has been a project many years in the making. Engine 5 has a 100 gallon water tank, and a single piston multi stage 40 gallon per minute pump. Engine 5 can be used in an authentic camp as a first line of defense against fire. We now also have Engine 5's baby sister, Hose Cart 4, to accompany.
We are also available for presentations/lectures on firefighting during the Civil War, and this presentation can include Engine 5. Contact us well in advance of your meeting!
