Thought you all might enjoy a video of Victorian technology at its finest! A steam shovel and steam truck working together moving gravel in modern times -

That's really cool to see. My grandfather would have seen some of those machines still operating in the 1930s in Mexico as a child. My great-grandfather, (his father) was director general of the federal public works department in the 1920s and 30s. So my grandfather grew up following his dad during inspection trips to roads, dams, and very large projects in remote areas of the country. He used to tell me some of the things that he saw during that period, and the loader is one of them - also a Ford Model T that his father drove because it was tall over the ground.
