    I find it interesting that the smaller containers/boxes are finger jointed whereas the larger ones are not so solidlt constructed.

    I think the larger ones were shipped off to the stores, you might not get them back. Also, the little ones being carried around would see rougher treatment.

    These log haulers were fascinating vehicles. Here's a video of a restored Lombard hauler in motion...



    Note the steersman out in front. He had a rope/bell system to communicate with the engineer manning the propulsion.

    Over on MEM, Chris Rueby has built a highly detailed, operating model of this machine. This video shows it in operation in his driveway...



    If you're interested in Chris' model, a complete build thread is located here...

    http://www.modelenginemaker.com/inde...ic,6515.0.html

    His current project is an even more complex model of a Marion steam shovel. Build thread here...

    Chris's Marion 91 Steam Shovel

    WARNING: Both of these build threads are extremely deep rabbit holes. However, if you're interested in seeing how a master craftsman models a complex machine from scratch, these introductions will blow your mind.

    1952, already impossibly cool, with some help from its 227th day.

    Who'll bet that, right in front of the kneeling engineer, isn't a circular chart recorder? And waaaa-y bigger than TV screens of the era!

    Absolutely. I've had to manage recorders just like that for temperature controlled spaces in places I've worked. They were 7-day recorders, and needed a new chart every week.
