high pit wilma :-

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

steel scraper bars set to run in channels at each side of the pan sections.

The loading end of the afc can be seen at the left side-the gearbox is white.

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.]
