    I have beers with a couple that worked at the Offices of the Snowy during its construction, they commuted every morning from Cooma.
    The actual company "Snowy Mountains Scheme" did a whole lot more than just that one job...

    I think the "Company" was actually the "Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Authority", and as the scheme was completed the Authority morphed into an engineering consultancy to make use of their experienced engineering staff.

All good if not, just wanted to shoot my shot! Cheers, Jackson
    G'day Jackson,
    sorry mate, unfortunately i dont have any pics at all.
    Wish i did have some, he had a few albums full of some fantastic photographs.
    He was a bachelor and sadly the albums were lost/misplaced after he passed away in the 1970's.


    Cheers, Mick.

    Lots of history there, The Power Wagon in that photo is the one and same that i'm restoring . I scored that commonwealth plate sequence as a Custom plate (why I don't want this on club rego) . Ive spoken to the buyer that drove it home to Bega from the Snowy Auction.

    drove it out of the shed for the first time a few days ago so I could stand back and check alignment of tub vs cab .

    not sure how the photos will copy across from facebook. If they don't work let me know and I'll upload them.

    Ive been all over snowy photos and got a book on building the snowy, In photos LandRovers outnumber Toyotas about 50 to 1 . Toyotas only appeared very late on the scene & hardly et a mention in the book.

    Rare photo of Toyotas on the scheme, Its late because everything is painted yellow for safety

    Spot the Tickford.

    Im struggling to see a Tickford, the vehicle at front of the line in the background is an Austin like this. Probably look like a Tickford if you scale it down. Its huge compared to the Power wagon,. which is in turn at 126" wb is a lot bigger than a 80" .

    Text with photo reads " A hold-up on the road through Rennix Gap, below Mt Koscsiuszko - 1953"

    The tickford is the vehicle on the far left of the pic - is not an Austin. The shortwheel base vehicle further along (near the center of the pic) looks like a basic LR with a hardtop but could also be a Tickford - is a bit hard to tell.

    None of your pics are showing.

    Your right its not an Austin, The truck on the far left background looks like a Fuel truck probably a KB5 or Commer , def not a Landy , The SWB Landy just behind it has a ribbed roof, not a Tickford.
