help locating pics

I'm looking for pictures of woodchip loaders. Of course drawings or plans would be even better!
I've scoured google and many websites looking for decent pictures but I'm just not finding enough to really help me out.

I'd like to scratch build something similar to what is on these pages :

 but these pics don't help me out enough. If you have pics of something similar or know where to point me I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!
Brad

early 80's to present.

Something like the one in this picture would be perfect!

I found a place in Banks, OR on the P&W about 45 min from my home that still loads chip cars so I may try to take a trip out there and snap some pics if I can't find something soon.
