Gents,

I had a message from Denis today, who would like to thank you all for your support in that past difficult period.
He is recovering normally and started working again, in spite of some minor stomach problems, to be investigated further and solved in a near future.
He had no spare time to progress the LorraMine dio but told me that Michel was currently working on a new heavy service truck and that the huge Acco bulldozer (one-off Italian product) should make an appearance in Lorraine by year-end.

I'll keep you updated.

Gents,

In order to keep the topic alive while we are waiting for some new pictures from Denis, a few shots made earlier this year by Pascal* during a visit to LorraMine :

Rob and Steve,

I'm afraid that you will have to wait a little bit more as Denis hasn't posted anything new for quite some time.

Regards.

Guy just the thought of knowing it is on its way back is good news, thanks for keeping us updated.
Also that has to be Q in the blue pants, just look at the way his eyes are wandering over to white knight sitting next to him, must be close to 210 years between them. Must be nice to just sit around all day.
Thanks for posting.

Guy;

Really appreciate you posting these pictures. The work that goes into this diorama is incredible. Curious about the "bucket" on the Volvo wheel loader in the last pic. Do you have any info on it?

Guy je me permets de répondre Wink
This bucket has been made by Lorramine. It's used to fill in mine holes before blasting. The most difficult in this project was to find good pictures of the real machine, something very rare.
Lorramine use an other bucket on his project, on a Terex.
An other view of this special bucket. ENAEX used this equipment for blasting in Chili.

Ross,

Above a detailed answer from Pascal, the photographer of the Volvo loader in LorraMine.

Merci Pascal, pour ton explication complète.

Regards.
Guy
