The present project on my work bench: Gottwald Railway Telescopic Crane GS 100.06T produced by Kibri (16000)
First photos in the ealier stages:
Meanwhile I found this awesome work of a Kibri 16000 Gottwald Railway Telescopic Crane:
This is a work in progress. Empty spaces to add buildings. Home made crane, man with controls, in foreground. Shrub formula available. All trees available. The crane works, but needs a stationary steam engine/tractor PTO, circa1925
This is the transfer crane at Mt. Union where East Broad Top would lift cars up to swap with narrow gauge trucks with PRR standard gauge ones. Note the dual gauge track and switches. Still is early stages of detail. Done by Bill Suders
