I am working on building the intermodal facility on my layout and need some container crane options.  I have the Lionel Mi-Jack, but I'm not a fan of it if I'm honest.

Internet searches have reinforced that O Gauge just doesn't get the love from manufactures that HO does.

If anyone can share any links for options, I would be grateful!


Shameless plug for my personal layout (

Yes, commercially available products are limited at best for O scale/O gauge. Besides the working Lionel MiJack and the Lionel gantry crane, you only have static displays of Joal die cast PPM/Terex superstacker container loader/ unloader or Menards container stacker.[which is really used to stack container boxes at container terminals, not load and unload container well cars]

A more detailed scale MiJack or Drott container lifter would have to be scratchbuilt.
