Hi,

I'm new around here and this is probably a very easy question!

This is a link to a photo of a crane that I took back in 1981 in Doncaster.

Can anyone give me any details?

Thanks,

Keith

Hi Keith, had a quick look at your photo. Nice piccy of an engineers 10t heavy duty steam crane. Can't quite make out the number but it's probably either DRG80105 or DRG80106 both built by Graftons in 1952 & 1951 respectively. Both machines worked in the Doncaster area and were probably out of use not long after your piccy was taken. Both machines were broken up in early 1984, regards Steve
