Notes

Photo(s) removed from original albums and placed in new albums by Kevin West ca. 1989. The FWD truck came from the Utah power plants, carrying items to Deep Springs, where it became a workhorse for ranch work and DSSB trips. "FWD" refers to Four Wheel Drive, and early example of the type. They were made with a track equal to standard railroad gauge and could travel on rails with the proper change of wheels, though I don't know if Deep Springers ever did this.
