Heres a couple pitcures of the linn brochure, the transformer is not the same one ,because the linn is hauling transformers for weight for traction.

Loggah,

Thank you for posting that,

I did a quick Google search and found this which I believe is the source
of that photo,

UG&E developed Hydro Power in the Mohawk Valley region of NY.

I saw one of those sitting roadside in the Catskills a few years ago. I bet they did well in off road work. Did they mount ski's on the front for deep snow?

Yup ,they could use both wheels ,or a front ski steering sled. There is a Linn log hauler with skis restored at Blue mtn.lake museum in the Adirondacs. Don

The link below splits this thread,  I started a new one for Linn Tractors in an effort
not to hi-jack Loggah's efforts here with his Lombard.

 loggah,being a newbie,I hadn't seen your thread.That is an amazing machine:I have seen pictures and museum displays of linn and lombards,but never one actually moving. My grandfather worked on a survey crew in the Whites in the 30's ,and had told me stories of the amount of wood they could pull.
 How does a lombard steer?  Is it only with the skis,or is there some sort of differertial in the rear;if so ,are there clutches like a dozer?
 thanks for a great story.

There is a big worm drive differential with spider gears,it only steers with the front skis or wheels. That is why it is called an "AUTO-TYPE" tractor, basically anyone who could drive a truck could drive a lombard. Don

Those guys at the Bradley Museum worked pretty hard to get the steamer going,including a whole new boiler assembly made in Canada. I see Terry Harper and Paul Bretton playing engineer and Herb Crosby filming and narrating . They can all be proud of their work.
