Hello Fred,
Nice to see Larry Ryans 38-RB in your photo, I done a few shifts on her up in Cambrian Colliery ,She had shovel tracks on her hence the short boom, I notice a Foden tipping to the Bomb navvie which i would safely say was one of Edgar Pyles. Did you ever see Ryans 61-RB that done a small opencast up at South Tunnell?..

Yes Graham,
It is one of Edgar Pile's Fodens. Pic below of Edgar and Brian Pile with the Foden rep. taken on the same site. They ran about six of them, one fitted with the "Foden Two Stroke" engine.
I never did see Larry Ryan's 61RB.
