Technically this one has been mine for quite some , but its great to finally have it in my hands, with what looks to be a serious "on the fly" farmer fix on the cdp hook. Punched out the rivets and used fence wire to attach a big iron hook. I'm guessing it got the job done.
Can't wait to strip off the red paint and clean this one up, and probably use the drop with the clevis in pic 2.
Thanks again Doug.

Thank you for adding me! I'm researching for someone who is rebuilding a large, c. 1905 barn in central New York. It had this nice looking trolley in it and she's reinstalled it but we are looking for some guidance on setting it up. Any thoughts on the manufacturer? I'm also looking for resources for determining the length of rope we'll need? It won't really be functional but it will be visible and we want to do the rigging justice. ... See MoreSee Less

WB ACME. Whitman and Barnes. Great trolley. As to the length of rope it certainly depends on how tall the barn is. Hopefully you saved the track it was on as well

Agreed Whitman and Barnes acme

I have some Whitman and Barnes advertising but not for this particular model unfortunately

Megan I am from Phelps New York which is Central New also I would be glad to work with your friend. My wife and I demonstrate all makes and models of hay carriers around Central New York, And have helped 1 guy rig his barn. If you would like email me at jonespettyblue@yahoo we can discuss the project.
