I am not sure if Railtrack still own this lorry, but I gather it was re-invented a number of times during its existence. Andrew Jones.
Morning Keith, Interesting photographs of the breakdown crane in action at Exeter (St David's) in 1977.
Not sure if you are interested, but this crane was resident along with support coaches at Exmouth Junction. When Exmouth Junction closed on 7th March 1967 it was moved to Plymouth (Laira).
The crane was saved and is now in preservation on the Mid Hants Railway.
Fifty years since Exmouth Junction closed next year. I wonder if they ever rue selling off the the land as it would have had plenty of room for the much talked about new DMU depot at Exeter.
