on track …

…. of course, a dockside crane really ought to be able to run on track. Some time ago I acquired a number of lengths of 0-gauge track and it seemed a good idea to use them on this project, so here we go: Our crane is now equipped with a pair of MR French motors which drive bogies which fit neatly on this track which bolts conveniently to a “dockside”.

That means all the motions now operate – all that remains is to rig up a control panel and we are there! dockside crane 001s Img_5861
