Hello Fionn,

The attached files were downloaded from,

The images are scans from the Coal magazine. This was the house magazine for the National Coal Board. The article and photos have answered questions that I had concerning the use of power loaders in the Number 5 area. There are around 10 volumes from the start of the NCB to early 60s.

I hope that all are well and you survived the holiday season.

Regards Phil
