No use crying over spilt milk. :smiley-laughing:

More details to incorporate yet but first views of the in house 3D printed  N scale Ransome petrol-electric A Frame crane. Mike has yet to add the head shield, more jib detail, the cabling and hook. It is planned as an unpainted modelThis model is inspired by the re-release by Peco of twin packs of the BD type containers.#

Currently in yellow .... like the  BT Models OO scale version ... which has a load consisting of two large cable drums .... this one looks good with the steamroller. (Available separately) how did they roll it on to the flatbed  ... did the rear wheels detach?  Seems like rather a heavy load for what was generally quite a “light duty” tractor unit.

I think the wheels come off the prototype trailer.

Looks good but I would agree that its posdibly too heavy a load for the trailer to hold let alone the lorry to actually haul.

Added to my future requirements list though!

Hi all,

The low loader looks good - nice model.

It appears to be the same type as the NCB ones and, if it is, then it was rated at 25T loaded.

The Thames Trader came with a variety of power units so it could be one with the right power for the load.

Thanks

Yes, the rear axle was detachable. I only knew this design from Corgi toys but they were based on real low loaders from a company named Carrimore Six-Wheelers Ltd.



from: http://archive.commercialmotor.com/page/6th-january-1940/35


And the lorry may seem to be underpowered for a steamroller load but don’t forget that such vehicles had a speed limit of about 20 mph.

I can remember from the 80's we used to use a haulage company with an old school low loader. One of my jobs was to help the driver with two very heavy duty hydraulic jacks to lift the rear of the trailer so we could roll away the two sets of double wheels, lower the trailer again and run off the piece of plant. A realy slow job because the jacks took for ever to move the trailer up and down, hand operated.

A bit different from the trailer shown above as each double wheel set had a single pin with a big nut and R pin
