Never seen (or heard of) one of them before.
Looking at the shine on the bucket in the last picture, it must still be doing a bit.
I wouldn't fancy going anywhere soft in it! its definitely not a LGP or a LC machine.

è un relitto, un residuo di guerra, pensate ai nostri nonni su quei trabicoli, ogni funzione una leva per effettuare uno scavo ha richiesto mezza giornata, funziona ancora, lo usano sporadicamente per la manutenzione in una fattoria.

the ferdinandea is an industrial archeology site located a few kilometers away from pazzano and monasterace, in aspromonte. in ancient times the iron mine was extracted from the iron mines of Pazzano and brought to the Bourbon ironworks and melted. the wood cut in the nearby woods was used as a combustible material. s made weapons for the Spanish Bourbons. it is a very important archaeological site and a museum has also been set up.mongiana

the locomotive has Bova Superiore, to get it to the top it was a miracle that there was no tragedy. they used two trucks, one to tow the trailer one with a tow bar to tow the tractor that pulled the trailer with the locomotive, behind to push the convoy a large wheel loader, unfortunately I don't have the spectacular photos. the walls I repeat to you are the site of industrial archeology of mongiana in Vibo valentia near my village PAZZANO, MONASTERACE, in the valley of the stilaro, the area is an open-air museum with many archaeological finds, but they are not maintained, it is all abandoned. think that in the beach of Monasterace Marina where I have attached photos of the beaches and bathing establishments, in the vicinity in the direction of the lighthouse under Capo Col there is an important Greek archaeological settlement, the storm has taken away a piece of it, in the summer the tourists come they dive with the diver's estate, take away archaeological finds and no one says anything, it is the country of giufà anarchy reigns and the institutions do not watch over the territory, too bad.

I don't know how to answer you, I can only tell you that the archaeological site was abandoned and that they then carried out restoration and conservation works now it is open to the public and can be visited, it is located several kilometers from my house, I don't go often, near home mine recently restored a dilapidated stilo castle on the stilaro valley that dominated the valley, the area is impervious and rocky to transport the materials and machinery necessary for the conservative restoration, they had to build a monororaia, a sort of railway with wagons and a cableway , I must have some photos, you can access the site on foot. very picturesque and evocative as a place. pity that our administrators are superficial in maintaining the territory, tourism could be an excellent economic resource.

the problem would be the access road to a certain point even the trucks go up, then you have to go up a narrow path the monorail is still the track, but hardly anyone visits it a boy in the area would like to organize guided tours but he has little success unfortunately.

stilo is a beautiful medieval village with breathtaking picturesque views, unfortunately it is neglected and not maintained, there are many religious buildings churches chapels monasteries abandoned convents that are falling apart architectural masterpieces abandoned to the degrading action of sinful time, they could be a tourist resource economic a driving force for economic revival for the stilaro valley.
