Specific Item Information: Every railroad needs an overhead crane to lift heavy objects from railcars to trucks for delivery to its final destination. They are used for lifting quarry stones, pre cast concrete parts, steel coils, steel rails, large crates or anything that wouldn't roll off a flatcar or gondola. This gantry crane model is created from an actual prototype erected in the 30's and still stands to this day.

What's in the kit? Six white metal (lead free) parts and two cast resin parts for the concrete foundation. Full assembly instructions and cable for the hook. You will need a small file, "super" glue, and modeling paints for assembly and finishing of the kit. The scenery, figures, vehicles and trees are not included.

Model Information: All components are precision laser cut with peel and stick windows, doors, and trim for simple painting and construction. The kits are made of laser cut basswood, micro plywood, fiber board, plastic parts, plus cast chimneys (where appropriate).

Road Name History:
Railroad structures include but are not limited to stations, depots, yard offices, interlocking towers and tanks. A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

It generally consists of at least one track-side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "stops" or, in some parts of the world, as "halts" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses, trams or other rapid transit systems.
