50515 Lidgerwood (winch) Prince Rupert, BC August 28, 1958
Built by Lidgerwood Manufacturing Co., New York City.

These powerful winches were used by railways and contractors to build and maintain tracks. They were powered by steam from the locomotive and were quite powerful dragging a plow through several gondolas of ballast. They were always simply called a "Lidgerwood" since the manufacturer's name was painted on the side and it was an easier way to identify it.
