I'm thinking about an area for the grandsons (3,5,7 years in age) that will have a crane and scrap-yard / gondola activity. The two cranes that Lionel offered in 2019 have different functions. It would seem the Trackside Crane offers two hooks instead of one on the Gantry Crane and is fully automated with an sound option.
The Gantry Crane can move on wheels with a special track section (seems pretty cool), but has a manual up/down for the boom.
What do you have and how are you using these accessories?
Any pictures to share? Thanks so much.
