110 will still be sat where you last saw it. The plan with it last i asked was to fit it up with a diesel engine and genny rather than have to trail cable about behind it. Probs wouldn't run it at full capacity but be enough for a play thing. I'm not sure if it was related to this idea or that there is a problem with it but i know they were struggling to find anybody to do any electrical work on it.

Trefyl Quarry, Tredegar, had a 110 for years sat in the bottom of the quarry ..... with a cable like a man's leg feeding a sledge it used to haul about, with it's 'connector' on ...... can recall clambering about on it as a kid ... was the only thing left there at one time .. but Trefyl got re-opened and it was long gone by then ... told it fell victim to the gas axe ... :cry::cry: was some beast of a thing :cool: ........ never saw it work though :(

had a couple of days on an old manual 19, with a box on it, early 80s ... on a coal tip above Talywain feeding a cyclonic washery ... took an hour two to get me head around it ... had been a while since i'd sat in the old 10 that was my first crane seat. ...... it's 'different' :giggle::giggle:
