    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

West Metro Engine 15 is the lime/yellow color with a red stripe. It's an older E-One with an open cab. The engine used to be Roxborogh VFD Engine 101 before West Metro took over, WM never repainted it. If it was school bus yellow, Bancroft used to run with rigs that color and they might still have some in reserve status.

Did it have West Metro markings on it? If not Elk Creek, Platte Canyon & Coal Creek have yellow engines and could have been training in the area.
