Good evning!

My name is Anders and I am a 35 year old marine engineer. When I am not trying to introduce my kids to the wonderful world of old shovels you might find me behind my camera acting as gravel pit paparazzi or tracking down some old piece of machinery.
One of my other interests is playing with steam loco´s, mainly because there is nothing better than the experience of live steam! :lol:

This is the way you might see me, crawling on the ground :lol:

As I mentioned, gravel pit paparazzi is quite fun :)

Other than that, I am currently involved in the resurrection of an old Smith 21 backhoe

Anders if you take a look in the events section under Andrew Beaulah's working events there are plenty of rope machines in operation there. :thumbup:
