This programme is compiled exclusively from 8mm and 16mm film taken by Wynns staff during the 1940s, `50s, `60s and ’70s.
The first few moves feature Wynns Foden Drawbar tractor 112 and Scammell chain drive units coupled to solid-tyred trailers. The loads included a Scotch Marine boiler, a 100 tons casting and an Excavator.
1970s footage of Stanier ‘Black Five’ No. 45379 is shown being moved from Barry to the Bristol Suburban Railway Society, Bristol. Also `Urie’ S 15 No. 30506 en route to the Mid-Hants Railway. Diamond’ T’ ODW 937 with a 106 tons girder for Bradwell Power Station is seen being assisted by a Scammell Highwayman in the orange and black livery of Essex Carriers.
In 1977 Wynns moved a 108 tons pressure vessel a distance of 4 miles within the Proof and Experimental Establishment site at Pendine. The vessel measured 66ft long x 35ft wide x 14ft diameter.
Loading a 30 tonne Electrical Rotor into a Boeing 747 Freighter at Prestwick would probably be one of the most unusual tasks undertaken by Wynns.
Many more moves are featured.
