In addition to trucks there was a display of misc heavy equipment used in logging over the years. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of options for models of this stuff in 1/25, but the smaller scales offer a bit more.

Part 1 is located here

Leading off with a 1952 IH TD-24 with a logging attachment for skidding logs.

A well worked Caterpiller D7, from I'm guessing the late 1950s. It was being used as a back stop for a 12 ton logging locomotive that was providing rides.

A pair of Cletracs, again probably from the 1950s. Both are powered by a Hercules Diesel engine.

Nice collection of crawlers. Some excellent reference shots. SpecCast has a 1/25th diecast of the TD24 and logging arch. Sure would likre to find a 1/25th scale Cletrac though.

I couldn't remember who did the diecast or of which, but I thought there was an IH of some sort available, thanks.

My computer started misbehaving last night so I had to quit posting. I got a few from an earlier period of time.

No sorry that is all I got of the traction engine. It was kind of surrounded by stuff on all sides making it hard to get good photos. It is also quite tall as you may guess from the last photo, so I couldn't even get a shot of the cab (maybe if I held the camera over my head, but I think quality would have suffered :P ).

Not sure where it was from but a lot of the vehicles are from a collection in Willits which is about 1/2 an hour north of me. If it is part of that collection I might be able to get better photos of it in the future.

I don't think they were redwood, but yes the trailer wheels are just cut from a big log.
