Did anybody watch this BBC2 21.00 Wed 3-12-14
There was a brief shot of an Israeli Railway Museum and a very brief shot of a Cowans Sheldon Crane.

Any details known?

There are in fact two cranes in the Haifa museum which appear in the programme, and there are two very clear photos of the two cranes at the following URLs:-

the green crane

the red crane

The cranes are as follows; the information below was provided to me by Chris Capewell in an email during 2007 (and presented here in Chris's usual format):-
