Probably just perspective, it looks like the pulley control lines drape right across the road.
If a LandRover doesn't leak oil, it's run out.

Not my photos. Weatherill L62 from the early 60s with rear steer powered, probably, by the Roots TS3 2 stroke. That would have been one noisy barsteward to operate I would think.

That would be for their largest artic shovels, the L84 and L86. From the proportions I would guess the latter. Probably got to that point too late in the day.

A Short article from the February 1956 edition of Coal magazine about a Wetherill type 6HL for coke handling.

Never heard of a 6HL before. Odd looking arm arrangement.

That's a nice one, quite big too. You can't miss a Major here!

Coke was a by-product of coal after gas extraction, very light non dense material. The loader really looks like an adaptation of the 2H. Model.
