The third set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps - to be issued once again in a souvenir sheet format - depicts farm and frontier vehicles, including three used on farms and three used in off-road conditions. The RN 110, the first successful tracked vehicle developed by Calgary inventor and entrepreneur Bruce Nodwell, was designed to carry a five-ton load in harsh off-road terrains and extreme cold. It was built in batches, or on a custom basis. The 110, also known as the Nodwell Tracked Truck, was introduced in 1954. The innovative track was made of spliced conveyer belting which was cheaper and easier to repair than continuous belting. It was widely used by both civilians and the military for a variety of transportation uses.
