more work for the walking beam on the Explorer. Note the black and white bottle above the axle, this was filled with a mix of oil and WD40 and presurised to about 60psi to force the lube through the pivot as it was moving.

Scammell Heavy Haulage 1952 BTF Abnormal Load E W Rudd / BRS
Dodging The Column - 1952 by British Transport Films. Hauling a 130ft distillation column 500 miles from Greenwich to the Forth Chemical Works at Grangemouth long before the introduction of motorways and by-passes using 2 chain drive Scammell`s and solid tyred bogies. Some dodgy health & safety issues by todays standards - like crawling under moving trailers and hands infront of moving wheels! Very nostalgic road and town/city scenes & commentary. E W Rudd not Pickford's or Wynn's!
