For a short time I did this. It was more trouble than it was worth however. I hadn't thought of making smaller containers. Then the crane could have been set at trackside.

Very interesting, it is still a source of wonderment to me that HO modellers can have perfectly working Container Rail and Road Systems but we fail to get that. To be fair the Garden Conditions are much trickier and there are more into the smaller scales.

Lionel came out with a container crane quite a few years ago. Some say it's tricky to operate. I can't say as I never bought one.

Fascinating, I expect it was smaller than G but seams to work quite well. Can understand how Operation may be a bit tricky, after all on a real Crane the driver would be above the Container or in this case Truck Trailer.

Hope there was not anything in the second Trailer that was Fragile cos the drop to the floor would have trashed it completely!

Forgot to mention it was "O" scale.

All though I don't have any Playmobil trains I do use there buildings and find them very versatile and make great scenes. If you get a chance check out Eric Muller of triple o on Large scale c or GRW forum, he has 4 small children who actually help on the layout and uses a lot of playmobil stuff including the people, and on the left side of the waterfall is a 3 store hotel I made with playmobil including the people, Great product, Bill
