The OO scale Container Terminal Crane (44-0009) from Scenecraft can help transform your layout into a modern industrial freight scene. Typically used for loading and unloading intermodal containers from freight trains at ports and yards, they use a unique tool known as a spreader to move the containers, rather than a more common hook. The spreader is lowered on top of the container, locking in position in the four-locking points by using a twistlock mechanism.
