I pulled my Lionel 6-18402 Burro crane off the shelf to photograph in a few vignettes. After taking the photographs, I decided to run it down the track a short distance. As my layout is all TMCC controlled, operating this unit conventionally took some getting used to. It was fun to see the unit, with a couple of trailers in tow, run about the layout. Even after lubing it up it was still pretty noisy (in a good way ). It got me thinking; has anyone ever installed TMCC in one of these units? I'm thinking it would take a major redesign of the motor and transmission. I would be happy if it would only control movement of the unit, not cab rotation or raising and lowering of the hook. What say you who are smarter than I?
