Blyton 1981

Doncasterís 75 ton rail crane and a 100 ton road crane lift a 100 ton tanker back onto its bogies on the 21st September 1981. Beneath the jib of the road crane a 45 ton 4 wheeled tank wagon can be seen with its wheels in the air. This carried bitumen residue which has solidified. Shortly after this photograph was taken the tank wagon, without warning rolled completely over onto its wheels. Fortunately no-one was near it at the time.
