Lego – 6480 – Classic Town – Fire – Hook and Ladder – Light & Sound

I always wanted a Light & Sound set when I was a Kid. There were are space sets, and the 3 I loved. Those being a Fire Truck, Police Truck and Construction Crew. Browsing BrickLink I spied a cheap Fire Truck, the Hook and Ladder set, 6480, cheap. I had to have it. It’s a decent size truck, contains a single Classic Minifig with Grey Air tanks, a few tools being the:

  • Radio
  • Axe
  • Shovel
  • Broom

It also contains a small pumper trailer and a Ladder. I modded mine slightly by changing the windscreen to the Light Blue Tinted version of the vertical screen. The Electrics all work, powered by a single 9Volt Battery. The lights either Flash alternatively or stay on constant (depending on the way you fit the light bar) and there is a few options by twisting the black dial from lights only, lights and siren, and lights and alternative siren. The kit comes with optional covers for the lights being 2 x blue, 2 x red, 2 x yellow, plus a spare 4×2 and 8×2 white electrical plate as a spare for your own creations.


I shot a series of photos of the kit being built, whilst not perfect, It’ll do for now.
