SAR Class 35-000
Title:  SAR Class 35-000
Description:  Time to call in the cavalry to liberate the stuck Cat, but the cable is just not long enough. The front end loader at right came to lend some muscle, but it was wisely decided not to attempt to drive it through the water and mud-filled ditch to get close enough to the stricken Cat.

SAR Derailment
Title:  SAR Derailment
Description:  The cable is pulled taut, and the stricken Cat is started up to take part in its own liberation. Time to get out of the way in case it snaps - you don't want to be in the way when a 40 millimetre cable breaks!
