A steam powered crane with a safe weight load of 5 ton. This crane is thought to have been built / worked for “Limmer & Trinidad” at Fulham Docks, London until 1974. It is out of gauge (too wide) for use on a standard British railway as it is a mobile dock side crane.
It is thought that three simliar cranes may exist or have been used at Victoria Docks, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Previously based at Foxfield, the crane had its boiler removed for transportation to the Northampton & Lamport Railway in early 2010.
