Elgin Joliet & Eastern Railway 245 Ohio Locomotive Crane. I became inspired to build this when I saw it not far from where I live. I took pictures and they are included below for reference.

The words are spelled alike, but why they always remind me of this type of <a href="http://www.kandsrailings.ca">railings</a>;?

Eric, Amazing job on the 245 Crane! What a surprise to see as it is my name on the counter weight. I operated this crane for 10 years until I retired in 2010. Would you consider selling it?

This is just too cool, the details are really impressive, especially using those girder pieces for the boom, very nice. It looks just like the real thing. Fantastic work. ~T

Quoting T. Young wow that is cool but did u use motors for the trucks? just wondering because it looks amazing. and the color and shape!
Yes I did use motors for the trucks because I wanted it to be self propelled like the real ones. The cranes double as both cranes and locomotives, for the work trains they pull. Thanks for the comment!
