As for shacks on trucks, just a two OT pictures of the switcher I refurbished the electrics of. It was used to Switch cars in a paper mill and could handle 3 loaded ones -that is some 60 metric tons. All that with a 10HP traction Motor running @120V= ( after I 'doctored' it )Yes, watering the flowers was the first task before Operation. Alas, the turntable picture doesn't show my dog on the control which was there when the Picture was taken

Excuse my normal thickness ... :dope:

Nice window box !!

@Si
10 traction batteries @12V did the job.
