Thanks. The photos were taking at the model railroad club I belong to. The crane has been sitting on the layout for 30 some-odd years before I moved it to where it sits now. I'll get some more info on it next time I'm down there.

 
That crane is on our model rr club. www.rvcmr.org  The crane has been on the layout since 1972 and was custom scratch built by one of the founding members who passed on over 10 years ago. Here are a few of Espee9180 locomotives on the ready track.

Welcome to the club. I did just that thirty years ago and never regretted it. In your honor I went outside to my Queen Palm tree and kissed it.

I like the looks of that steamer-looks like a Canadianized version of an English locomotive.

It is actualy a model of a American Locomotive Company. Canidian Pacific , pacific, that is made by Triang hornby. Though it shares a standard drive with the triangs pacific class locos. The tender used on this model is the same as the Flying Scotsman with no bumpers. The drive may actualy be from that loco also. It is a closer repersentation of a CP pacific than a Marx Hudson is of a NYC Hudson. These are toy trains.
