Flionel 583A Electromagnetic Crane

A few photos of the Lionel/Flyer crane, $149 from Charles Ro. It's a nice tinplate accessory that you don't see on every other O gauge layout. The action is more limited than a Lionel crane - it's basically two position load/unload rotating about 180 degrees.

Bottle caps from IBC root beer make good "scrap metal" for this one.
