Scammell 100-tonner. by Mike Jeffries

Currently unavailable for purchase


The 100 ton (payload) Scammell tractor was introduced in 1929 with just two examples being built. In 1937 Edward Box bought the second of these from the original owners Marston Road Services and it is seen here unloading a W.D. 2.10.0 locomotive to be shipped to France shortly after D Day 1944.

A painting like this of your favourite vehicle, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £1500.

    Thanks, my loyal fan club, I’m pleased this connects with gentlemen like yourselves. I painted this for my first transport calendar in 1989 and having learnt more about cranes since know that a dockside crane of the type shown would be hard pressed to handle such a load on its own!
