Nice! Now if you can only make a "universal" straddle loader ( a.k.a. Mi-jack) that will load and unload scale containers and trailers that would be awesome!

PLEASE make an intermodal crane!!!!!!  You could put a thin piece of metal in the top of the container and use an electromagnet in the gantry crane to pick it up and let it go.  There is one in HO made by Heljan that I debated gutting and putting in an O scale version but $750 is a bit high to experiment with.....

BTW, I have one of the original brass rotary coal dumps made by Harry Roberts if you would like to see it....

Thanks,

Randy
