A Heath Robinson design? Very elaborate, but well captured, all its complicated construction. What is its function?

I think the function was to show how amazing the Cornish are with engineering, who started with tin mines. It was mentioned that this Man Machine was going to do a countrywide tour as it folded up back onto the low loader after sometimes walking along a street (in Tavistock).

Very interesting Ju, thanks for explanation. It was difficult from your image to tell its scale, but the article speaks about equivalent to three double-decker buses. It could be mistaken for the Terminator from the film.
