List of all H485

Post #1 by petor » Sun Mar 12, 2017 11:57 pm

Hello.

My name is Peter and I am interested in the Mining-Excuvator Demag H485.


How many units were built, what where the differences, and is there still one working??
Or at least parked in a mine in one piece??


The list should contain at least the Demag H485 Models before the H740 and H655.

I started to create a list with some information I found on broshures and books. Who knows more or got some pictures?
(you are welcome to send me pictures and information at xy@linie-z.com to help to complete the list)



I want to create a poster with all the different macheines on display and then pic one livery for a scalemodel in 1:50 that I want to build.

Greetings, Peter

Hi Peter welcome to CMN :wave: I have a vague recollection that the first H485 that originally worked in Scotland was broken up for spare parts after it had finished working in Canada? I am sure I have seen a photo of it somewhere semi-stripped for parts? Perhaps some other CMN members can shed some light on this?

That's correct- the first H485 was purchased new by Coal Contractors for their Roughcastle Site near Falkirk Scotland. It loaded 785's initially and these came to Godkin once the 789's became available. I also heard it was then moved to Canada.

I saw I picture of one parked with a fence around it somewhere- I'll try and find it.

Hi Dave. That would be great! I have a picture in a book of a 485 from Suncore that is used for spareparts. I think it is the machine from Scotland.
