On a mostly sunny and sometimes windy day, Sunday June 12th, the Central New Hampshire Model T Club members went on their June monthly tour. A total of 7 “NH Granite T’ers” showed up for this short noticed tour to Bear Brook State Park. We left the Irving truck stop (500 NH-3A, Bow, NH 03304) a little after 9am, for the short drive (via North Pembroke Road) to the park. John Luna member of the New Hampshire Antique Snowmobile Club was kind enough to meet us at the Museum, where we enjoyed looking at the many snowmobiles on display, thank you John for taking the time to show us all the exhibits and answering all our questions.
Afterwards we enjoyed our picnic lunches in the pavilion. Next we traveled to Dudley’s Ice Cream in Loudon and then back to Concord over many scenic back roads. Sign up as always was not necessary, if you want just show up and join other club members for an enjoyable day touring in your Model T.
Thank you to the members who were able to join the tour.
Warren, Please tell us more about that huge green snowmobile....
I'm with Keith - more details and/or pictures on that monster would be appreciated!
pretty sure that is a lubard log hauler, or could be a lynn.
This was on the museum's website (Warren's picture is better):
1918 LOMBARD LOG HAULER
Built in the 1920’s, this machine has a gas rather than a steam engine. These machines were used in winter logging operations. It was retrieved from Eagle Lake, Maine by Timberland Machines of Lancaster, New Hampshire. Timberland Machines restored it using pieces from 3 machines to display condition and donated it to the State of New Hampshire.
Apparently, Lombard also made a steam version from 1901-1917.
Here is a thread from a Forestry website about one (owner says it burns 8 gallons of fuel per hour):
Keith, Doug & Ron have the information posted. I have no other info as I was more interested it the Model T snowmobile. Maybe one of the club members will see this post and have more information for you. You can try contacting the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association by going to their web site.
