    Engine 74 - "Lost World"?

    Maybe this has been addressed before, but I cannot find it. I was wondering why Engine 74 is called "The Lost World".  I understand many of the mottos and nicknames of the Engines and Trucks, but this one I cannot figure out.  Does anyone know why they are called this?
