Derwent Loader No.2 (IMG 2879)

Derwent Loader No.2 was not completely scratch-built, there was the actual chute that came from somewhere (meant to be a loco coaler, I think) and the Evergreen-built structure was added to look as though a high-level roadway gave access to the chute for tipper lorries. The Cooper Craft lorry was modified to look like a tipper with struts under the back to look like hydraulic lifts.
