1940s Bridge Machinery Road Transport


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a historic moment in the transportation of heavy machinery across the iconic Tyne Bridge in Newcastle upon Tyne. The image showcases a Pickfords low loader carrying a Ransome Rapier W90 walking dragline excavator on its way to the Whitley Bay opencast coal site. The photograph is part of a series documenting this remarkable journey, spanning 280 miles from Carrington Coppice opencast coal mine in Derbyshire to Whitley Bay. It offers a glimpse into the challenges faced by engineers and workers as they maneuvered this massive piece of equipment through the bustling streets of Newcastle-upon-Tyne during the 1940s. The sheer scale and weight of the walking dragline excavator are evident against the backdrop of one of England's most famous bridges. This visual testament not only highlights impressive engineering feats but also sheds light on an important era in industrial history. Preserved by Historic England Archive, this print serves as a reminder of our rich heritage and pays homage to those who played pivotal roles in shaping our nation's infrastructure. It stands as an enduring symbol of progress, showcasing how technology and innovation have transformed our ability to transport heavy machinery efficiently over vast distances.
