'Down and outs'

Post #1 by Jeremy Rowland » Sun Oct 11, 2015 5:29 pm

Thought this was probably the best place to start this thread; I came across some interesting kit yesterday amongst which were machines that are probably beyond saving so I thought I'd start a thread going for these machines of all types, the Ergo cabbed Leyland is well gone as is the Wetherill shovel.

Hi Jeremy,
I have a sad story which may fit here.
My first pic. taken in 1951 shows this already elderly 100 ton Scammell in its former glory.
Image
This one which I took last year at Rush Green Yard shows it in a sorry state. I was told it was all there under that lot.
I think down and out is a fair discription.
Image
The twin to this vehicle is in preservation.

Fred am I right in saying that the preserved version of the Scammell is owned by Maurice Hudson of 'Hudson's of Dudley'? I am sure that I have seen the preserved version in Hudson's livery? What a shame about the non-preserved one!

Yes Jeremy,
Hudsons 100 tonner now resides in the Commercial Vehicle Museum at Leyland. There were only two built circa 1929/30 two pics below.

A couple more 'down and outs' for you; the one you have seen before not too sure about the Jones KL44 crane stood next to its executioner.

You can see the old 5LW Gardner quite clearly.

Yes its Daimler powered by a Gardner five pot 5LW and it was the pre-cherry picker tower lift used to access tram and trolley bus overhead lines from what I can gather.
