    Just finished these two Yellowstone Park Winter Maintenance Trucks a couple weeks ago. Inspiration for these two were the original real period Yellowstone work trucks outfitted with tracks.

    The pickup is a Nylint with a Buddy L rack in the back and Buddy L dozer tracks underneath. The interior is from a later model Nylint Chevrolet pickup. The front and rear track assemblies are connected by an appropriate 'cross-bar' that causes the assemblies to steer in opposite directions. It's a nifty piece.

    The Dump Truck is just a Tonka Hydraulic dump truck outfitted with the tracks from a Tonka trencher. Both projects were fun and are powdercoated in a period-correct Yellowstone official color. Enjoy! James
