Mobile Yard Crane

Mobile Yard Crane

Mobile Yard Cranes with enclosed cabs were first introduced in the late 1940’s by various crane manufacturers such as Coles & Jones offering lift capacities up to 10 tons. Production continued along the same basic design theme through to the early 80’s. Many are still in use in industrial yards throughout the world today having excellent re-sale value offering ease of operation and maintenance. They are seen in many colours/liveries including red, white, green, yellow & black, all being very popular

Our aim was to create a scale size simulated version having a Jib that could be raised and lowered. It was also important to keep the assembly as simple as possible and with ability to show with or without Operator in the cab, cranes spending a lot of time parked up. It is not a direct copy of any specific make, just a soundly engineered representation to sit happily on any layout over this extended time-period, suiting N-gauge
