Although the "wrong scale", I build a crane in 0n18 for the Gnatterbox challenge. To make the things complete, I added a "work caboose" and a boom car.
Here is the complete train and some more pics:







The crane was donated by an old east-german PIKO H0 crane, bogies are Liliput H0e, the rest is designed by me and laser-cutted.

The lateral supports need a redesign and must be made from acryl, railings and steps are still missed, at least my light grey spray can runs out (no, it's not a new kind of weathering ) but here its is, nearly finished, and I'm quite proud of it.

regards
Michael

Michael-

Nice cross-scale adaptation!

Is that dressed up fellow you, going out with a Fraulein?

You should be Michael, those are some wonderful Maintenance Of Way cars.

Most importantly, it looks like you had a lot of fun building it.
