I'm pretty sure it's an old coal mine roadheader like this http://resource.sanygroup.com/images/1274691870916.jpg.
It looks right to me, and that's what my dad (from a coal mining family) said when I asked about it many years ago. I imagine they were pretty easy to come by around the time Nemesis was being built.
Could be wrong though!
