Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Seagrave Fire Truck

 

Tunnel to Towers 9/11 Commemoritive Seagrave Model Fire Truck

Stephen Siller was one of the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. While on his way to play golf with his brothers, he got the call that the Twin Towers were under attack. Siller immediately donned nearly 70 pounds of gear and ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center to help his fellow Americans.

Siller and 342 other firefighters died that day. This incredibly detailed die-cast Seagrave Tractor Drawn Aerial Fire Truck pays tribute to them all. Both the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
and FDNY logos are featured prominently on each side of the truck. The Sept. 11 design serves as a constant reminder to never forget to honor the bravest among us.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each fire truck directly benefits the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Only 500 of these die-cast fire trucks will be produced. Available  at Lionel Racing. The price is an amazing $150.00 (regular price $349.95).

This is a once in a life time opportunity.  As far as I know, this model will be the only fire apparatus crafted to honor the heroes of September 11, 2001 and the heroes that continue to defend our country.
