I dont know how in need the UGM is for mine cars, but I did spot one in Buck Mountain, outside of Mahanoy City. Its next to someone garage. I dont know much about mine cars, so the photo will have to be your only help in what kind it is. I didn't see anyone around or I would have asked about it.

D,

it does appear to be mike a.ish. however its too tall, mike a cars are normally around a foot tall or wide.... depends on how those southern fielders measure their sideways mine cars :lol:

Easy there chuck. That is a mike a style car, it is one of the higher capacity models for a mammoth split tunnel or drift.
