Scammel S24 with trailer and load

Seen on the A5, Shenstone, Near Lichfield, England this Scammell 6x6 tractor (Q937 FVT) is about to pull a 200 Tonne press to the Ldv factory in Birmingham, England.
The load had been transhipped to the 16 axle modular trailer from Ale's beam set and bogies using the hydraulic gantry seen in the background.
The load came from Germany into the Uk port of Hull and needed to be moved onto the modular trailer to allow it to be manoeuvred in the tight confines of the Ldv site.
The image is from a 35mm print taken by me in February 1997, please see my other posting for a close up of the Scammell.
