Car Movers

Car movers are often incorrectly referred to as "track mobiles" which is actually a brand name just like Kleenex is for tissues, Scotch tape for cellulose tape, Band-Aids, Windex etc. Brands so common they become the term applied to all makes.
So it is with car movers. Trackmobile is a common make, others include Rail King, Shuttlewagon, Pettibone, etc.
Trackmobile is sold by Whiting Equipment in Welland a long-time railway connected industry that supplied transfer tables and turntables in the steam era. Rail King is sold through local dealer H. Broer in Alymer, Ontario who also leases small diesel units for local industries in the Welland area etc.
