Default Toy Steam Shovel

Every once in awhile I'll stop at the local antique mall to see if I can find something interesting. Generally I come up empty handed,but this time I stumbled across this little beauty tucked in a corner. I didn't necessarily get it for free ,but I feel as I didn't do to bad for the intricate movement it has for a sheet metal toy. In fact it not only shovels and dumps the trip bucket ,but also articulates from side to side. I thought that I saw a thread on something similar to this on this forum, but I can't come up with anything. I do know that this was made by Oscar F Strom with the patent date of 1940.

I would like to know a little more about it if anyone knows and possibly see some pictures of other ones like it.

I wish I could have the original book of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel that my mother used to read to me, but this more than makes up for it!

Thanks, Brent

Personally, I don't see anything that could go wrong.
