Class 5 and class 9 loads to do with bridging? So the sizes to do with some bridge element to achieve the required capacity?

 

Is the fact the jpg is called 'Gunner class' significant?!

Diameter of bridge plate?

 

Tempting to think that Gordon, but its not that.

Peeping! No Sean just to dispel the belief that everything is to do with latrines :D

is this to do with railway bridges and the over hang on the wagons

I thought it wouldn't be long before you joined in Wally as you are rather too good at getting these! Nope its not railway related,

Clive,

Is this related to pontoon bridges and the amount of deflection of the decking / pontoon, as different class vehicle weights pass over?

Or alternatively, the depth of water the pontoons draw for different loads.

 

Hi Sean, basically what I am saying only a different way of putting it! No doubt wrong anyway ;)

Size or distance between centres of a bridge element then, bearer, cross-brace, side frame, or the like.

Sounds reasonable Wally but its not that.

Interesting one Gordon but its not as complicated as that & not that sort of thing.

Bridge stringer depth?

 

trevor

Its not that Trevor.

 

Now for the shock clue. Although it is referring to Bridge Class loads these particular dimensions have nothing to do with bridges.

Is it maximum overhang of load on vehicle?
Ah so you are there Derek. good idea but nope.

 

Incidentally this is WW2 but that probably doesn't help.

I was thinking more the folding boat type ferries as I could not think how the class load related to vehicles other than their actual rating.
