In all those photos I bought ,I found these pic of a dual driver position Donkey to load trailers on rail cars. Can't make a name but looks like Mack style hub caps. They are dated mid 40's. I figure WW II by the woman and the trailer style.

Any Info? Paul

Yeah, Hughs / Coleman seem to be what they are / were. I found a reference to the Hughs Aircraft Company modifing Coleman Aircraft tugs to load and unload trailers at the factory in mid 40's from rail cars. I wish the photos would scan better. Paul
