0sTAILGATE - BIG WILLY AND TOM ON THE EIMCO SHOVEL

high pit wilma :-

Heh!Heh! As if we had no work to do..!I was busy loading out a full shot ,which had just been fired down in the previous shift.Note the white surveyor's line on the centre of the arches at the top-this line was our only guide to driving a roadway straight underground.

[You can't see through the solid strata to know where you are going you know....!]

The figure 60 on the right side of tom,on the girder,is our paymark,it shows our advance inbye, from the entrance to the roadway junction,where we started to drive in.

A few yards further into the drivage,and it turned wet as hell,with bad roof conditions.
