Okay I just want clarity L 169 is SL 24001. Then what is the Reg# of L113 's new rearmout because that was listed as 24001 ?

They got a new rig last year to, it was a 2022. Wouldn't they still be rolling with that.
I think they were fiddling around with a rig that TL 22 had and couldn't maneuver around the tightness of Riverside Drive.

35 truck is a 95 foot TL so they're switching back to a 75 foot?
No. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't be wrong. TL-35 Originally had a new 75' I photographed it when it was newly delivered the Summer of 2021. TL-22 Initially was going to get the 95' it had all the company decals on it ready to go but they had issues size wise with it responding from quarters. TL-35 had several rounds of testing as did TL-21 to test and see if a 95' would fit and work from those houses. TL-35 then received the 95' initially slated from 22. TL-22 received the "old" TL-35.

No, you are not wrong. TL22 was slated to get the 95 footer.

Tower Ladder 35 was supposed to get the 95 footer but something happened... Tower Ladder 22 has issues now with a 75 footer on getting to boxes off riverside drive so the 95 footer was not going to work. They try to go against traffic when possible. Tower Ladder 35 still has a few streets but due to the amazing chauffeurs they get it done!
