Hi All
Here are some IH BTD20 photos from around 1967.
Can anyone help with the location of the first one?

Even with my illuminated magnifier at 7x magnification it is not possible to determine what they are.

Up to the early 1990's there was an old MOD site tucked up by a roundabout slip road on the A4130 between Didcot and Milton Park. Don't know when the Didcot bypass was built though.
Is there a prize???

Not forgetting the Muir Hill with swan neck.
Love the Major on the Thames. All produced a Dagenham I think.

The guy on the M-H looks very unsafe, sort of perched there.
At first glance, makes you wonder how fast the Major was going! :shock:

Those little Thames 400E compressor trucks were actually powered by the compressor engine on back which made them mid engined I suppose !
Dunno how they inked the gearbox to compressor engine as it is other way round.
