Lucky is a good name for Larry as he spent 20 plus years in the U.S. Army blowing stuff up. Now he is
shooting stuff up with his camera at the Evergreen club. He brags that he still has all his fingers...and arms.
I got introduced to his MOW equipment that ran on its own but they may become flat car loads as they run
too slow for the mainline.
Another favorite of Larry is this Weyerhauser 3 truck Shay that many roamed the backwoods in the
Northwest and many other places where work had to be done to move stuff.
This model had a piston that pushed a mechanism that ran a crankshaft that moves the wheels.
Lots of monkey motion to make it work.
This one could be considered a V-2 job that worked a shaft that moves the wheels as well.'These are
the days before gas or diesel power. It was heating up water to make steam to make pressure.
Finally this little beauty I had since the Great Northern was an active company and these souvenir
was not just a cute cardboard model but a useful product that most people had a need for.
Matches! So I put it on Ebay a few nights ago starting at $10.00 and it went quickly for Buy It Now for
$50.00. Who knew?
