What is the name of this toy?



You can briefly see it in the video. The kid calls it truckapillar

I had the actual toy when I was a kid. I think, we got it at woolworths at North riverside. There were two more sections to that truck that was shown on tv. I would like to buy the toy again, but no one knows what the hell the name is of the toy. And a lot of people think it was a movie prop, but it wasn't.

it has maybe 24 small rubbery wheels. The front has a semi truck cab. And in front of that, at window height; a wheely bar. The same width of the truck. It would hit the wall first before the truck and pivot the truck to angle the wheels to climb a wall.

After the cab, there is a v8 engine block. A large yellow roll bar... which is like a handle to hold the truck. I cant remember what was after that. And the very end, two dump truck type containers but like the ones used to mine coal.

I'm not Dave but I know the answer. On the ground if they are not near the locomotive. There are pottys on the locomotives, but not the rest of the train. Railroaders are gross.~Mandy

It's not just railroad guys. I had to shit in a plastic bag in a bucket today. Not everyone has the luxury of a bathroom at their job.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Oh so it's like riding? Do they just hang a cheek off and let it rip?
Sounds like good technique

Side question... Do they have stompgrip on the side of freight trains to make it easier to hold on?

I will post pictures from a few different engines next time I go to work. Posting locomotive shitters on clsb. Let the photochopping begin. As for stompgrip you just hang the fuck on. Try grabbing on or hopping off at 10 mph. That is where the fun begins.
