Transporting a Trolley Car

Transporting a Trolley Car

Both images show a typical Autocar tractor, 164” wheelbase and a custom built headache rack for holding chains and binders. The rack was made with 0.060” upright styrene channel beams with horizontal 0.040” styrene rods. Check to see if I’ve uploaded other pictures of this truck that shows the headache rack by doing a search (on this web site) for 101520 which is the serial number I’ve assigned this model.

The first photo shows a 50 ton drop center trailer with 11.00-20 tires so the load must be blocked toward the front.
This trailer best represents a reworked Rogers with a gooseneck that is too high for a truck fifth wheel because it was designed to be used with a “jeep” dolly. That is the reason for the 7” lift under the gooseneck.

The second photo shows a level deck trailer with 11.00-15 tires. In this case the top of the load is just a little over the 13’-6” minimum bridge clearance. the first picture shows aa load a little more than a foot higher.
