Trans is shagged.
seen this twice. I am told its the planetary gears seizing.
Tow it backwards...should go bang....and then you MIGHT have normal operation.
If you do get normal operation, you can then drive it down the road. It might go 1k, it might go 1000. You will get odd thumps and bangs driving along.
Just get a change over and be done with it.

Cheers
Jas
