Walthers Cornerstone HO Scale: Bridge Crane - Kit

The Walthers Cornerstone HO Scale Bridge Crane is an ideal addition to waterfront industrial or transloading scenes on your railroad. Coal is the life-blood of any coke or gas works and a ready supply is always needed. Many plants were located alongside waterways, which allowed massive amounts to be delivered by ship. To reach into their holds, special bridge cranes with longer booms extending beyond the dock were used. These made quick work of unloading using a large clamshell bucket to stockpile coal nearby. At steel mills these big cranes were also used to unload limestone; at other docks they were used for handling aggregates and ores. This impressive kit has a modular design and additional parts so you can build a longer or shorter version to fit your available space. With its superbly detailed steel truss work, operators cab, clamshell bucket, trolley and more, it will be a focal point of any scene. On the waterfront, it makes a great stand-alone coal or aggregate dock crane, and its a natural at a steel works handling iron ore, coal, and stone.
