Lionel # 182 Triple-Action Magnet Crane
Unlike the # 282 Portal Gantry Crane, the Lionel # 182 Triple-Action Magnet Crane does not move on tracks. 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.
