They were famously used in Normandy to move Locomotives from beached LCT(4) Landing Craft to the nearest rail line. The production of 100 units was undertaken by Boulton & Paul, and they were known as “Orolos” due to the use of the unusual track units of that name rather than wheels. An engine and winch housing with operators compartment is situated on the front deck, with massive loading ramps to the rear.
Our kit comes complete with Scammell winch, detailed drivers compartment, easy to assemble track units, opening stowage lockers, deck fittings and recovery chains, tie downs and winch cable. Etched brass details and a selection of decal markings are also supplied.
