Lionel Trains Operating Gantry Crane

Detailed instruction on how to move the Gantry Crane back and forth are in the November 2009 “CLASSIC TOY TRAINS” magazine. This is a video of the Lionel 2316 N&W Operating Gantry Crane on my home layout. I have modified the crane to include a homemade electromagnet and the addition of a simple motor control to allow back and forth operation. The crane has been set on 2 027 rails.
