Swishy mate....... did you see the air connections? Bloody hell mobile air compressors had been using claw type connections for donkey's years, not to mention rolling stock air hose connections.
The hydraulic jacking legs. Mustn't leave them under pressure but how long have house movers been using hydraulic jacks with a follow up screw. Jack her up, follow with the screw and go home.
Keeper pins through sheaves, wonder how many of them got lost.
As for the turntable and pin withdrawal device....
Must have been tough blokes, all done on the run and some of that stuff was HEAVY.
Needed some Yanky ingenuity.
There is one in the series about picking up a busted tank in North Africa with shells landing quite close.......Theyre not mucking around with all the bits,but the dont bother to duck when shells land either....Tanks got one track missing,but they get it on and take off quickly.
Not sure about that one John, expected to see Trevor Howard or David Niven sitting on the mudguard.
British Pathe film and the gear/blokes looked bloody clean to have been in North Africa battles.
Perhaps I'm too sceptical.
The Brisbane City Council had two of the Scammels,down at the Light St trolleybus depot.....i remember seeing one towing a tram back on the rails at Holland park,after hooligans put thick oil on the tracks at the end of the line.....one was at a little shop at Plainlands for years,the other was wrecked for the 6LW to go into a trawler.
