for the Model railroad experts?

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?

Best answer:

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
