The Merryweather Steam Fire Engine, manufactured in England, served the Town of Whitby from November 1872 to 1926 when it was replaced by two motorized fire trucks. The engine saved downtown Oshawa from destruction by fire on the night of December 8, 1872. In 1934 the Town of Whitby gave the fire engine to the York Pioneer and Historical Society in Toronto and it was returned to the Town of Whitby in 2005. It is now located in the lobby of Whitby Public Library Central branch.
