A Caterpillar D6 Springer Dozer perhaps.

Big yellow blade at the front with lots of grey scrathed metal showing, and Big yellow cab, with Caterpillar decals on it. And a rusty brown vertical exhaust pipe, and hydraulic rams.

Hi a3nige
I have almost finished my steam springer, ("bruce spring-steam") twin cylinder single acting disk valve, with a semi flash boiler. Hope to have it ready for Llanberis. (a few pics in the springer section) Will post a few more at the weekend.
