A great bunch of photos. Thanks for posting them. Do you know if the yellow dozer is an Allis Chalmers? I guess the red one is an International? Cheers

I used to load an old forward control cab Albion years ago with clay for brickworks. It was slow as compared to the Ford Custom Cabs doing the same run. Albion could mange 4 loads a day the Fords 6 -7.

Do the Coal Scuttle Inter, the C cab truck and the 1920's car in the shed behind the Inter, or the Albion survive?




Morris, the Albion was wrecked in the 70's as it was bought for the engine to power a pump.
The Inter still survives but I don't know the current owner.
As for the rest of the vehicles behind the Inter, apparently the photos were taken at the old Steam Centre on a display day in the 60's.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Years ago I bought an 1830B ACCO, restored it and then put it back to work. Was originally Dot 4 Perkins then I fitted a Dot 4 Turbo Perkins.

Found a couple more pics, the Backhoe was mine and the scraper was one I bounced around in for a while!

Morris, have a look at Another Auction in the 'For Sale' section, the Inter you asked about has surfaced and is for sale.
