Nice pics.

The one twenny with the high cab module and fully enclosed engine compartments is a PMS machine, last run before the 'E's.

Did anyone get the plant #'s?

Hello all!! I know it's been a while since I have been active, but I do have some photo updates from the Lodge House site. These pictures cover around 6 months. I have been taking trips about once a month or so and I have picked the best pictures. The ones of the RH120-E were taken from the bridleway that the haul road crosses. Luck was on my side that day as it was literally 20-30ft away from me! There are also a couple of pictures of a field all finished off that this time last year was a hole! Videos will be uploaded to my youtube page within the next couple of days also.

Nice pics Luke,
I can see the site from my office window at work. I reckon they will be done by Christmas. Rumour has it that UK Coal are done and dusted altogether after that.

Appears to be excellent reclamation, is there much subsidence of those reclaimed areas. A bit of vegetation and passage of time won't know area was stripped.

Bigkit, The tent is still going strong and it will be such a shame taking it down, served me well for the duration of the site :lol: There are parts of the site now that look like it hasn't even been touched they've been backfilling the last hole since March now and it won't be long at all that it will be completely filled. I'm hoping to take a couple of more trips down within the next month or so to keep track of the reclamation process.
Cheers

No interest at all in the RH120's or the 777B's (only 6 of the trucks went to auction in the end). 2 of them have been broken for spares.

Most interest in the Ag tractors and Landrovers which went for over the odds money!

I'm not seeing a "tent" in the photos. Did you have fabric buildings on site? We used a couple at our pit mine in the mid 2000s. Made by Alaska Structures, I think. They worked well.
