Here's a few I have been meaning to post but just not had the chance, they were taken last week at work and show an ex-Charles Russell Scania complete with trailer and crane. I think the trailer may just be one that Tony Coates built powered by a Magi-Deutz engine.
The huge lump is actually gas powered and is used for electricity generation it was being delivered to the unit next door so I quickly grabbed my camera. :thumbup:

I think you'll find that the engineers who designed it did all the calculations first. :thumbup:
