SKeleton Frame Traction
Jim Great pictures......had a chat with some of my mining pals who are experts on mine locos...boy , they cannot understand the reason to build a frame like that. the weight of the frame gives the traction The thoughts are that it is a "Greenbat " loco made by GEC and looking at the size of the wheels they suggest that the motor is a type 158 made for 500/260 volt DC Looking at the height of the trolley wire above the drivers head, they may be right. Our low trolley overheads were always enclosed by wire screening or wooden boards
Wow, nice pictures. fred
