German term or phrase: Berliner Bockkarre, Grabholz
This is a tourism text about visiting a brickworks, which is now an industrial monument. The brickworks dates from 1911. The terms appear in this section:

Trockenschuppen und Brennofen sind im nahezu ursprünglichen Zustand erhalten.
Eimerkettenbagger, Kipplorenbahn, Berliner Bockkarre und Grabholz sind heute noch funktionstüchtig zu bestaunen, wie auch mit Handstrich gefertigte Ziegel.

Is there a specific English term for Berliner Bockkarre, please? What sort of a cart is it?
For Grabholz, does anyone know if this refers to some sort of wooden prop or pole? I know it's normally associated with wooden memorials for graves, but this doesn't make sense to me.

For the whole sentence, I currently have:
"Today, the bucket chain dredger, tipper wagon rail, XXXX and XXXX can still be seen in working order."

Many thanks in advance for any help with this.
