Steve Neubaum's Album: IHC/Mehano Snowplow

John found this IHC/Mehano snowplow in his office. I suggested we use it on his winter themed display layout... after some improvements. The clips that held the plow to the gondola body were broken, and it needed more weight before it could be pushed reliably. And a battery powered LED headlight. And a body mount coupler. And lower the body on the chassis. Thing looked like a monster truck!

THe switch for the LED headlight is under the car in the center sill. A Kadee coupler box holds an old IHC Magic Mate coupler, as we still run old horn hook equipped Tyco and Bachmann as well as newer knuckle equipped stuff. This thing can couple to almost anything made in the last 60 years. No, not going to try to make it compatible with the Mantua Automatic couplers my antique stuff uses!
