Trucks and Railroads Working Together

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.

Weathered Autocar Ttractor

Weathered Autocar Ttractor

One of my favorite trucks and also one of my favorite models. I built it as a tractor to haul a three axle log trailer. Someone bought the trailer but I’m glad they left me the tractor.

The manufacturer’s model number is a DC-103-64-OH 188. The DC is for the cab style introduced in 1950, the 103 is an indication of the capacity and if the last digit is odd the axle is set back, if even it is set forward, same hood length.

What's o the Back of your Trucks

What's o the Back of your Trucks

Sometimes it’s interesting to see whatr’s on the back of a truck. Is it dirty from all the road dust or is it providing valuable advertising space to the people in the car that’s following the slow truck.

For the modeler it can sometimes create activity like men working inside a truck or cargo being unloaded, And then there is the identification required for ownership or safety concerns.

Autocar Off Highway Rock Dump

Autocar Off Highway Rock Dump

Here’s an Autocar 2036, an off highway setup. It has a Sheepscot 20 ton rock body part #26293 one piece urethane casting. This would have been a new truck in 1954 when Autocar introduced the pit fenders as a factory option.

The right side view shows the connection for an exhaust heated body to keep the material from freezing in the winter. In the box there’s a flapper valve that directs the engine exhaust down when the body is raised.
The wheelbase is 198”, tires 12.00-24. s/n 101368
