Left to rust away quietly!!

Post #1 by dozeron » Tue Jul 03, 2007 1:15 pm

Found this D8 8R? & Let scraper at a private coal mine in New Zealand in 1993. Although its hard to see, the dozer has pulled the front axle off the scraper so they just left it where it stopped. It had been there for a few years then and I bet it is still there. Mine was owned and run by a couple of Irish guys, say no more!!machinery lying everywhere, dozers, scrapers and the odd grader, all in various stages of (dis) repair.

Dozeron, that wouldnt be Jerry OReilys mine at Huntly by any chance. If it is, that is the original "Kupa Kupa" mine which was worked by maori women and the coal sold to the Govt. for the gunboats in the Waikato Wars of 1863. regards rayman
