These seem to have gone the way of steam locomotives and cabooses.  Here are some that I've seen, how about some of yours?

This one was large enough that it had restrictions when it was on the Richmond, VA Viaduct.

Mike,
Nice shots! I was always intrigued by RR cranes an all. I'm partial to the Burro's an the BIG sky hooks.... I don't like the new replacements. they don't run on the rails much anymore!

Anything Chessie will work for me.  Nice shots there, CHESSIEMIKE.  Does anyone even use steam cranes anymore?

Chessiemike...
 
Thanks for this thread! I've been wrangling with the idea of a crane for my RR and have been looking at the Tichy 125 ton steam crane. Of course, it has to be modified to give it the 'my railroad' look. These shots gave me great ideas for enclosing the mechanism, adding details, changing out the trucks, etc. Hey, isn't this what these boards are for? Thanks again everyone!

I guess it's possible, but I don't think it would have been so big and right next to the roadname like that. I really don't know though.
