Carrier Track

Recommended Posts

Spotted this in the middle of nowhere at a place called Tilmouth Well

really off the beaten track...I would bet they don't know what their footpath is

I was shown a photo once of a low garden 'fence' made from overlapping carrier sprockets, quite a number of them. It was allegedly well know to all the carrier owners in the area and as the guy was not interested in selling his fence, it got a bit shorter from time to time.

I wonder what would be a fair swap for that carrier track ?

thanks richard, i didn't know that

Hi Rick,

The wheels are wider, same width as the Vickers Light Tank MkVI, of which the Australians had a few of before the start of the war, so they must have based their track design of the LP Carriers on them.

regards, Richard

You would need to check width as Aussie LP Carrier track is wider between the horns than British and Canadian Carrier track.

As is Windsor Carrier track

Nice pun (-:

totally unintentional....... but I did realise after I posted

most of my is riddled with hidden airstrip so most likely bits all over the place but really remote... ie 7 hours of desert road driving well a bit less as Mr has no speed limits so was sitting on 130...140kmh

when I went up that way when I was a kid the govt had banged oversized star pickets into all the runways as the drug runners were using them
