Question by Shadow: for the Model railroad experts?
I have found some HO scale overhead or “”gantry”” cranes and some of them are not powered. I was wondering is there anyway of making them Remote controllable or at least automatic for my ho scale layout?
Answer by no
absolutely, but you may find it expeditious to scratch build and use the kits you have as detail parts. In Model Railroader a few years ago there was an article on adding motion to a factory that includes cranes.
Or buy a couple operational and leave the others static
