Default Mt Washington WMTW channel 8 snowcat history

Check out these videos pictures and links. Rumor is that the Tucker is alive but not so well here in New England! Stayed tuned to this station for more
Details. Headed out soon

http://www.ggninfo.com/WMTW1.htm

http://m.wmtw.com/news/wmtws-history...ngton/28062458

After the video on the bottom link scroll down and click through the pictures. Pretty sure that spryte is the one on display in Conway, NH.

To bad about that tucker ! looks like a interesting boneyard to look thru! Back in the 70,s a friend of mine was in charge of the cog railway, and i remembered a Spryte with a full cab,or at least crew cab that belonged to the observatory, probably the one Marty Ingstrom drove !!

Oh man, I miss that station. Since they went digital and removed their transmitter from Mt. Washington, we no longer get it over here in Vermont. Pity, I miss the old day with Marty Ingstram and his reports from the summit. The good old day, for sure.

My apologies for hijacking the thread, but seeing that snowcat brought back memories of most likely seeing it on TV when I was younger.

Cheers, gents.

I love that someone decided to chop the back off of the rig, then got tired of getting wet & stuck a piece of tin back up there.

Spoke with owner they have had it for about 30 years? His father purchased it from someone in Bethel, Maine which isn't far from Mt. Washington and where Sunday River Ski is without the tracks and pontoons on wheels running and driving.

Question remains as to who cut the back off. Thinking the yard did.

Tucker used in that capacity at the salvage yard to drive around compressors and tools. Been sitting for few years since.

Seed planted lets see what it grows into.

That's all very interesting. A couple of years ago my #2 son hiked up Mt. Washington in the winter. They got a break in the weather (global warming?) and didn't need their their coats.

I'm not into your machines but can see why you like them. I've had stick time on a 113. :-)

One of the Forest Service or Park rangers from Mt. Washington bought a nice tucker from the forest service and restored it after he retired. It's a steel track and he did a real nice restoration. The machine served it's whole life on Mt. Washington. His machine was featured in a newspaper article some years back. Does anyone know this guy?, seen his cat? Why don't we have pictures?
443.

There are some videos here: http://www.dragtimes.com/video-viewe...8-P0RI&feature , but my security browser at work won't allow it to open correctly.

Also another link for Washington cats. The 423 listed as "Cannons' first Tucker would actually be this one: http://www.forumsforums.com/3_9/show...0&postcount=42 This particular 423 is somewhere in Colorado. Also a pic of WMTW's Muskeg

Last year i sandblasted and painted the doors on my 1985 LMC 1200. As i was removing layers of primer on top of paint an image/logo appeared. Mt. Washington Observatroy. I wish i had taken a picture of the logo. It was very cool. Then one day while watching snowcat videos on youtube, i realized that the cat in this video was my LMC 1200 from 20 years ago.
