Lionel # 282 Portal Gantry Crane
The # 282 Portal Gantry Crane can be manually moved on its own set of tracks, which I cut from some rusted O27 track. The crane cab can swivel from side-to-side, and the boom can be raised and lowered. When energized, the electromagnet on the crane picks up metal objects. When the magnet is de-energized, the objects are released.
