The stageloader was an A.F.C. - [armoured face conveyor]-it consisted of steel pan sections flexibly fitted together,with steel chains connected together with heavy duty

The AB15 coalcutter is parked up and abandoned also,on the right side,in the foreground.[the jib is lying on top of the machine.]
