Its in Middlesbrough in a haulage yard , ex trolley bus depot strangely enough as Middlesbrough had the one of the very last trolley bus systems to go, early 70s.
Someone will probably ask me for details of exactly where it is to buy to restore and owners will say it was scrapped last week !
This has happened twice to me so far :cry:

Saw this while travelling from Rye to Hastings on the train so got these pics on the way back.
Not too blurred seeing as the train was rattling along and taken through the window :thumbup:

Still clearly marked Wrights of York , always surprises me people leave their name on sold machines, unless they went bang of course.


Pleased to see this Priestman Mustang 2-15 is still in the yard 2 years later and not scrapped , seen today working on some road repairs .

Hi Craig,
The 2-15 was built in the Sanderson Era between 1985 and 1989.

Does anybody have any sales literature on the early Priestman excavators, cubs, wolfs, etc, the ones that have a gear driven undercarriage and a wooden superstructure?
