    Back at the "line horse," Weyerhaeuser at Snoqualmie had a similar truck, only on an old highway (1960) truck. It was only called the "bull gang truck. It didn't have an A frame. But, it did have a level wind used when picking up guylines or worn lines. We never used it when tightening up guylines, which happened every so often. I am curious, I know of only one other truck set up with a level wind. that truck I saw once down at Crown Z Deep River. How common was an A frame or a level wind?

    Jumbo,
    That Deep River truck ended up at Jerry DeBriae.
