Good evening Paul and followers,
As retired Railway Crane Operator, I have the original cast iron duty chart of one of the cranes that was scrapped, the only ID number on the chart is 363, I am trying to trace the typr of crane it beloged to. the crane was equipped with out riggers so it could be operated in a blocked condition.
i think it was either a coles crane or a Taylor Hubbard, it was operational in Crofton Depot near wakefield during the 60's & 70's.
If anyone can offer any iformation on this rail mounted crane i would be grtaful.
Love the phots.
Kind Regards Pete

Love the site, great inspiration whilst planning my next model layout
do you have any more from the Associated Octel Ellesmere Port plant - I worked there for years, we had all sorts on site - Sodium ones were always interesting - the sidings were very large and during my apprenticeship it was a real hive of rail activity
