the real dragon wagon

Recommended Posts



apart from the guides on the front end, that trailer looks remarkably like the folding gooseneck trailers the Canadian Army has had around for quite a while. They had a donkey engine, usually a Honda, mounted between the wheels and operable by open a steel tap door. They were manufactured by company called Arne's Welding in Western Canada. I'm wondering if that is a left over one from the draw down in Europe, a ton of kit was sold off before the closure of CFE.

The International with it's 55ton trailer was a commercial design bought in as an interim measure when the experimental models then under consideration had all failed to come up to expectations in trials.

I've just looked up XM523E2, it was a 25 ton Prime Mover built by International Harvester in the mid 70s. the 'X' and the 'E' suggest it was experimental and not standardised.


i was first built in the early 60s note the goose neck trailer and the m60
