Post #1 by Rolyd8k » Sun Feb 10, 2008 2:29 am

British Steel,s No2 walking dragline Corby,i took this cine film in 1975-6
the dragline was casting overburden across the railway line on to the
bank the other side,the D6 dozer would drive in the bucket and be lowered
down in the draglines dig to clean up ,then lifted out again.
