I am looking for pictures of the Ransomes & Rapeier W1800 dragline and the Marion 195-M dragline. Any help will be apprechiated.

I have just a few photos of Marion 195's, and even less of Rapier W1800's. I have also sought photos of the Marion 195M in the past. If you have any photos already of the 195, please post them, and then I can post the ones I have that you don't have.

You may also try asking on the stripmine.org messageboard; it could yield better results.

Try & get yourself a back issue of "Classic Plant & Machinery" Oct 2006. This issue features that era of Rapier draglines with quite a few pictures. I am sure they are still available to order.

A couple additional photos. These are the 201M shovel at Draglineworld when it was originally a 195M.

Here are some scans of Marion 195's from various books or brochures I have.

Here's one more I found on my drive that I must have missed earlier.

This brings up a question that I'm curious about. What is or was the largest 2-crawler dragline produced? Is it the Marion 305-M?

Yeah, Josh, it was the one and only 305M dragline by Marion.
