At Last !!    All Hail the return of The King of The Truly Weird (if not wonderful).

Herb: your "thing" looks like the prototype of the "Pope Mobile" (probably only seen/known in Latino countries).

Thanks Jose,      Michael

Those Lymies had some original stuff, too. That one WAS licensed!

Michael likes ''three link'' couplings because they have some slack.

Does the ''coupling'' in the linked photo satisfy you Sir M?

Nice photo, thanks Helmut.

The location is almost certainly Canada Dock, Liverpool - I used to live close by & often walked through that (then) abandoned tunnel. Road & farm vehicles were often used in small industrial sidings or docks, when the rails were inset.

Herb:    

Are you saying I like "a bit of slack" ? You had better hope Mrs S doesn't see this !.

Unusual but not rare back in those days to see a bit of cable, chain or even rope used thus. Sometimes used to move rail wagons into a restricted spotting place, by driving alongside but ahead of the wagon with the cable running diagonally. Probably not 'Elf & Safety approved these days.

Regards,   Michael
