Crane 31 in Use

Unload Rail Runner

Just occasionally 31 gets used for a big job where a large crane is needed, such as lifting wagons and locomotives or equipment off trucks.

V 1213 is lifted to enable front pony to be removed for maintenance.

There is not too many cranes in the lower south west that can do this.

We have also found that 31 is good for installing a Turntable.

31 is packed up and shunted over to the turntable pit.

31 is shunted to the edge of the pit, given some sections of the turntable to swing around and then puts them into place.

As can be seen here, Crane 31 is a rather useful piece of equipment.
