That's a brute Dennis, do you plan on restoring the rigging as well? Is the entire crane a scratch build or are there manufactured components to it like the car body or chassis? The RMCA has a similar looking crane that I was told was a hybrid bashed from a Locomotive Work Shop kit. The tool car's a nice bonus too.

Excellent looking model.

Different crane.  Boom not as good, but better rivets on the body.  Trucks from my 17/64 pattern, cast by Allan Wehrle

Better photos later - I have added a brass and wood tender similar to the one Lionel supplied in the 1950s, only bigger and not plastic.

Speaking of Lionel, they did a similar crane that was apparently a work of art, and it operated!  Gasp!
