Post subject:  Preserved CS 45T crane

The Cowans Sheldon crane in the museum in Budapest has been confirmed from its MAV file of 1950 as works number 8056.
Interestingly the file states it was donated by / bought from a United States Military inventory ca. 1947. An explanation of this statement would be interesting.

This picture of it at work in Hungary appeared on a websring ( unattributed ).

This museum is becoming a relative haven for preserved cranes -
CS steam 45t
Gyor steam 65t
Takraf EDK300 60t
Takraf EDK300W diesel 30t ( jib configured for working under catenary )
Takraf EDK300/5 diesel telescopic 50t
Unknown 4w hand crane
