  • Arfnoon, all.

    Afternoon all

    Well, this is weird. Being a new guy on a forum again.

    Anyways, as you would expect, I'm into my history. Mainly WW2 and the ECW although most periods interest me.

    I also have a very mild obsession with tanks.



    So, catch you guys on the boards at some point

    *Aberdeen, Maryland, not the real one.

        Howdy!

        I think the tank was an adaptation of the bull dozer during WW1.
        Bull Dozers were used by the US Army Corps of Engineers to pull heavy skids on Ice Roads during World War 2 in Canada.
        One such project was the Ogoki Long Lac Reservoir needed to produce electricity @ Port Ship & Canada Car (Thunder Bay, Ontario).

          Maybe the F1 Renault, but the limeys went another route.

            I like how they used the ice to resurrect the one that got away.
            The Cat Train was used quite a bit back in the day like during the construction of the Alaskan Highway.
            They used to bring all of the parts by rail and assemble them on site to be used for heavy hauling to mines etc.
            Here is Chrome Lake near Obonga Lake Thunder Bay District mined during WW2.
