That had to be nerve wracking to use! That thing looks so top heavy when it's extended like that.

Thanks again, Richard, for a great shot!:D Yeah, this truck is in desparate need of outriggers. Still, I'm sure very few of them fell over. Did Rodenhausen Body and Lift build the cargo body or the cab as well? I've seen a really beautiful example of a COE of this vintage done up as a Coke truck in turning wheels. Beautiful truck! How I'd love to just get hold of a cab...:D

Wow - I wonder how fast that coal was going when it hit the end of the chute?

Always great to see these pics Mr. Quinn.

Now everybody knows(well some of us that never knew about the little door on the older homes), what went on the other end of that little door on the older homes [:o)]. Both sides of my grandparents had this service to their houses, however on my father's side this came straight to their house in the back of their 2R5 [}:)].

If I never see a commercial one, that would make a kick-bleeping model for the old train layout :D.
