Working class Ford CMP, removing the railway sleepers of the so-called "Blauwe Tram" at Voorburg, Holland.

More early post-WW2 pictures of CMPs in civilian use, courtesy of Bill Murray in CMPs from all over postwar.

These photos do nothing sitting in my documents files so might as well put them up here.

The C60S had "CMD 60476" painted on the hood.

Hendrik,

That's great to hear! Will you and Martijn be working on the modifications as outlined at Apeldoorn?

Regards,
Hanno

PS: moved you posting from 'Did Canadian army in ETO use 4x2 CMPs?' to this thread

Hi Hanno, we don't know yet, the engine looks better then expected, so perhaps we will keep it original.

Default Dutch CMPs in the 1980s

Marcel Both sent me some pictures of Dutch CMPs taken back in the 1980s.

Some of them are still out there, others seem to have disappeared from the radar.

  • C15A Water tank. Where is it now?
