4-truck heavy-duty flatcar carrying log skidder

Glanville Lumber Co. 4-truck heavy-duty flatcar carrying log skidder. A massive steam-driven log skidder (used to pull the fallen logs to a point when a crane would lift them on to logging cars) weighs down this extra-heavy flat car, which has four trucks to distribute the weight. A friend gave me this all-metal flat car in 1979, and I painted it with Glanville colors and added the decals. I built the skidder frpm basswood and Campbell or Grandt Line rivets. I forget the source of the steam boiler, engine, and winch. [GPL]
