Re: Weatherill

Hi Pete I have been around but I'm in Western Oz (the home of some big machines) at the moment. Back to the L50.

Re: Weatherill

Hi Andy I think it only had a buffer beam at the rear but retained it loader arms and bucket as shunting was a secondary job for the machine. Early shutters had frames to connect front and rear buffer beam because they were based on tractors and therefore only had light weight body panels which were...
