British Transport Films - Measured for Transport (1962)

The moving of a 123 Ton Transformer up into the hills of Wales (near Blaenau Ffestiniog). Using mostly a railway originally made for slate mining, and the use of Ballast Tractors for the final few miles to the power plant. The transformer was designed with the route it takes in mind to clear obsticles and low clerances of tunnels and bridges. And how they transfer it from rail to road is striking.
