Agree.  Looking up one thing leads to another and another; it gets addictive and all of a sudden, 2 hours later...

And then huge accumulation of links and trying to form those links into folders to be able to find a specific link in the future. lol

Intriguing. I imagine it didn't do much for tire wear Grin But honestly, a remotely operated automatic cow-loading device: how on earth didn't I guess!

These sets were toys. Not meant to be used very much.

One downside of a Google search, you can easily get sidetracked. Sometimes find stuff you wish you did not find? lol

I get a kick out of findind stuff like this. It goes to show how much we have advanced in 20yrs.

Those accessories run by the loco's wheels look to me like things which only work
for a short while and when everything is meticulously aligned.

It also looks like a good way to put excessive wear on a loco's motor.

S.R. bring up a good point; does the loco need to have traction tires to move the dial and work this device?

That device is very interesting! I have never seen anything like that in H.O. before.
I am mainly into O gauge and that video on U-tube was very good showing how the device was used. Now for the details on how it works, or how to transfer the power to the operating devices.

I find it strange that this thing does not contain its own electric motor.  Would it then require that the car being loaded remain a fixed distance from the loco?

Maybe it could contain a solenoid-powered cow chucker, that could feed cows from a spring-loaded cow magazine.
