Dozer onto Light Vehicle

This looks like the sort of thing that is done at a 'Monster Truck' rally. This must have been in Australia. It looks like a Datsun 180B underneath the left tread, and a Commodore and Falcon in the background.

Nothing proves how good your dozer is a pushing dirt like running over some light vehicles!

Derailment Near Gladstone

This coal train derailment happened on the 8th February, near Gladstone, Queensland. I particularly like the 'ejected' operators cab. Is that a design feature?

Bucket-wheel Reclaimer Boom

I've had lots of emails this week about this incident. A bucket-wheel reclaimer fell of the back of its low-loader as it went over a median strip while rounding a corner. The reclaimer is 55m long, and weighs 200t, and has a $M7 value.

Thanks to everyone who sent through some photos!

An old photo today, sent in by a reader this week. This must have hurt to watch.
