    Does anybody know anything about these type of Roller.

    Made by Motor Units of Coventry for use by Railway companys for rolling Ash ballast on station platforms.
    I understand that this example came under the jurisdiction of the Plant Manager at Hull.
    Bought by the LNER around 1935. Eventually used by the Hull BRSA for Cricket pitch duties.
    Sold by Auction at Goole.
    2 Stroke Villiers type engine.
