CROTON, N.Y. -- The Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department posted got into the "Throwback Thursday" craze when it posted a photo of an old department tanker.

Tanker 10 was put into service in the early 1980s and was vital to serving areas that didn't have fire hydrants.

The water wagon was built on a 1963 Mack platform that was converted from a local construction company. It was capable of delivering more than 7,000 gallons of water to the scene of a fire.

Tanker 10 was replaced in 1990 by a newer truck. It was sent to the Pocantico Hills Fire Department where it served for a few more years, according to the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department.
