Hi Gary. Nice to hear he's still about, I'm doing grader work at the moment mate around the local quarries keeping the haul roads in good condition, well trying :lol: :lol: . As Martin50 said he's working on his site up at Grantham. Martin he 's a really nice bloke and when you see him ask him if he remembers Jim who drove the Case cx130 and a dumper for Bill Daniels down at Langage Power Station, give him my regards will you and ask him if he's going to work at Hinkley Point Power station in somerset for kiers at some point?

Hi Modelman093, second from the left is Harry Cole,third along is John Kitchener,Russel (cat 235) would know him very well,I think the first one might be Denny Ellender who showed me the ropes on the ts14.I got put on a 631b on the Hoddesdon Bypass after the euc rear axle broke ,thats what happens when you try to keep up with 631s and 637s on a long haul.
