Quite exotic for Wales in 1962 - Mercedes with Blaw Knox mixer.

That dozer with vertical rams is definitely an Allis but I can't give the size. I like that scraper pic. Rail bridges have to utilize a layer of dirt between the bridge and track, and it is a given that maintenance is an ongoing task. This means dirt could be coming or going. Hard to say by looking at the workers topside, but I'd hazard a guess that dirt is going up.
