Today I ventured over to the fairgrounds to see what the big steam whistles were all about. Since thursday they have been holding a bi-annual logging trade show (it alternates every year between Ukiah, and Eureka, CA) which includes lots of current equipment and a large historical display. I'll lead off with the trucks. First up a 1926 Mack AC "Bulldog", ex City of Portland (Oregon) used by their public works. Now owned by the Roots of Motive Power, a historical society in Willits,CA. It is fully operational and was being used to run loads of wood to a 12 ton steam logging train that was giving rides along a section of temporary track. This truck is almost a dead ringer for the Monogram 1926 Mack AC Dump truck.

Next is a restored 1947 Peterbilt with a Page & Page log trailer owned by Campbell Logging. The info on the sign states the truck is powered by a Hall Scott Series 400 368 HP gas motor, with a Spicer Model 7751, Brownie 8031C and a Timken SD462 rear end.

and now a pair of Peterbilts, of I'm guessing 1950s vintage. Also an older Kenworth in the first photo.

Peterbilt with 2 logs, you rarely see a truck hauling logs this size anymore. I have a feeling these are saved just for showing off at events like this.

I'll wrap up the trucks with a pair of the new Caterpillar trucks. I'll post part two, heavy equipment later.

Just guessing at the size of those logs ( 8 ft diameter and about 18 ft long) just guessing those would produce about 9000 bd ft of lumber :blink: Not sure being Sunday morning it's hard to get current pricing but those logs are probably worth well over $ 40,000.00 each
