Autocar DC10264 & Lowboy With Northwest Pull Shovel Load - By Roger Dowden

Here's another look at Roger Dowden's Northwest 25D Pullshovel, this time shown with his Autocar built from an Alloy Forms white metal truck tractor kit with a Sheepscot winch protected by a scratchbuilt brass headache rack. The GHQ lowboy features a scratchbuilt brass gooseneck and Sleepscot wheels. The shovel features a reshaped roof to be more prototypical and Roger added what would have been a shop-built counterweight box to the rear. The Autocar was previously shown in Photo Galleries 387 and 388. The shovel was featured previously in Photo Gallery 422.
