Electric "trucks" on the Hoboken Shore

There is a reference by an ex-HBS employee to electric trucks being distributed in the morning and retrieved at night from the dock areas. At first I assumed these were road trucks, but I have come to realize they were actually much smaller devices for moving around pallets, boxes and loose materials. How long these were in service, I don't know, but given the age of the employee, there is a good chance that they were in service still in the 50s.

This will make a nice operation event as well as another 3d modeling project.

Generations of Hoboken Shore Locomotive photos

Representing early and late generation Hoboken Shore Railroad locomotives. All that is missing is the HH660. Yes, I would have to computer model and 3d print all but the 44 tonner... Backdating at some point with catenary? Fun to think about...!
