Hi,

Tiny little wheels?

Or have I only just noticed for the first time?

Sarge.

Re the style of fuel tank on the MB 1924. This is a pic of a Mercedes Benz 1924 that I owned in 1975. It had a similar fuel tank. I don't know if they were standard or just a common type of tank fitted later.

When I worked for Benedicts in the late 60s or early 70s, they had a 1418 with similar tanks, but had rounded corners, looked a bit nicer than square bends.

Hi,

I went somewhere yesterday to see something but on the way I saw this;


Anyone want some patch pieces?


and in the same yard, an alloy one of these, which seems to be a bit of an oxymoron for something that is generally speaking meant to carry heavy or at the least oversize loads - but then why the vehicle type loading ramps?
An experiment/ seemed like good idea at the time kind of thing?


Then, when I was leaving the place I went to see the something I saw, I crossed paths with this.
Going backwards out of the nearby other kind of something museum.
I think it is a stationary steam engine of some sort mounted on a very elaborate kind of truck (a mobile stationary engine?).
I was also reminded of how toxic and stinky burning coal can be.


but, not to worry, i soon found myself back on track and happened across Allsons old Wingfield shed, now occupied by Booths.
Do they still have their Lonsdale Depot or is this just the wine depot?


They had a couple of old bangers out the front, so if any of you are looking for a good one owner resto project (with full provenance I suppose), here's a chance.


And yes okay, it's not exactly a truck, but it is historic and I suppose it probably carry freight for pay at some point in its life and that makes it somewhat commercial too doesn't it?
And, after all is said and done, it was the something I went to see yesterday.

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Spotted this nice old White with sleeper cab and car transporter trailer in Dealers at Quartzsite Arizona on Monday.



You could drive it away for US$15,000.00

The Lear jet parked on top of it is separate!

I went past that same same somewhere a couple of years back, definitely some interesting goodies in the pile, probably more or different to what I saw then.

But no, its actually a Volvo.

There are some very varied pictures in this thread. Thanks for the railway and aviation ones. Peronne is one of four Andrew Barclay 1067 mm gauge industrial tank locos, obtained by BHP for use at Port Pirie. The others were Pozieres, Polygon, and Passchendaele.
See www.australiansteam.com/Peronne.htm

IIRC that Dakota is with the RAAF museum at Point Cook.

My usual thanks: I have taken the worst of the posted photos, removed the colour cast and done some cleaning. I did this one before the Photobucket water mark ruined photos sent via that site.
