Midland Railway Five-Ton
As published in the SMG Journal, 2013-14.
This compact (1/16th scale) model of a man-powered, portable railway crane circa 1910, is straightforward to construct but includes a lot of accurate detail, including realistic underframes and running gear.
The crane has hand-operated, geared hoist and luffing, a sliding counterweight, and the model includes two wagons and a length of track.
Designed, built, photographed and described by Rob Mitchell.
