Re: Fixing Shifted Loads

My railroad called it a "Load Shifter" and had several along the line. Up until the later 1950's, they were hand powered with crank on cable take up spools.  I recently came upon an AFE while researching for someone where electric motors were to be added to the existing device.  
The device (in plans) looked home built of very heavy timbers.    Jim Dick - Roseville, MN
