Lomount Marion 195M dragline?

Post #1 by Mark Williams » Mon Feb 06, 2017 5:09 am

Can anyone supply some information on the above dragline that worked on the Tanners-Hall,Tow Law opencast site in County Durham in 1986.Lomount (Mowlem) also had an opencast working @ Langley, Chester Le Street @ the same time.
I have recently seen a photo on Tracshovels page on FlickR of a yellow & black Marion 195M dragline.It says that it was working @ the Lambhill opencast site NR Fife in Scotland.These 2 sites were worked by Coal Contractors in 1986 & then by Crouch Mining in the early 90s.I am wondering whether this was the Lomount dragline which may have been sold to the last 2 companies,as no record of Lomount using the 195M after Tanners-Hall.
If anyone can assist with the mystery,it would be appreciated.
