Beavering Away

To provide a comparison with the new Beaver featured here a little while ago, I thought these images of a slightly older machine may be useful.

This is 51001 and is a long serving VolkerRail plain line tamper currently based in Scunthorpe and is out of public view for most of the time - you may see it from either Dawes Lane or the high level line from the blast furnaces if you're lucky!

The main difference from a production point of view is that this lacks any of the sophisticated computer control which the VolkerRail NL Beaver has but it's interesting to watch a good operator as the results can still be very good.
