An update to the story, April 2020. Sadly the fellow who saved this crane by buying it in 2011, David Lewis, passed away last year, which is why the crane was advertised for sale once again. The good news is that it has been purchased by the Lancashire Mining Museum located at Astley Green, Manchest...

I'd heard this was for sale. It's a shame considering the amount of work that has gone into it and that it has only recently been restored to working order. They've done a very good job on it too. Whatever happens, I hope that its future is secure. After its twin was scrapped in 2010 it would be a s...

Interesting, thanks. I was sure that there's a good reason, but it's an interesting comparison.

A series of great videos, thanks for posting. The NYMR has invested a lot in its bridges over the last few years!

I have to say that the way the chains are being used in the video in the first link looks very dodgy to me, sharp edges and some very undesirable angles. Obviously did the job though.
