I am a director of Peak Railway Association in Derbyshire. In December 2020 we purchased Cowans Sheldon Steam Breakdown Crane 5755 ADRC95223 (RS1106/36) from Peak Rail plc. Currently the crane is not operational having had the boiler removed some years ago. It is the intention to fully restore the crane to full operating condition. We are currently assessing the work required and the associated costs.

Welcome Gordon!

I had heard about the sale of the crane and it is excellent news that you intend to restore it to working order.

You will find that although this is one of the most specialised railway forums and far from the most active, there is a considerable pool of talent and experience accessible through it and many people who are happy to help if they can.
