This photo was taken in the mid 70s somewhere on the Trent and Mersey canal.
Can anyone identify the crawler crane?

But the unanswered question is which is it, Bison OR Lion.?

Two members, different views, anybody pick out some differences to confirm one or other ?

Its not!.......................Its a dragline, its got a bucket on the end not a hook :D

Could be a Lion I suppose, difficult to tell from that angle and the writting on the bottom obscures a fair bit of the terrain.
