LM049 Diagrams of LNER Steam Cranes c.1940s

  • LM049  Diagrams of LNER Steam Cranes c.1940s

NEW AUGUST 2018.  This file provides diagrams for five LNER steam cranes. They are 961001, a 5-ton crane for Lowestoft Harbour Works (marked as ex-Stratford); 961003, a Grafton 5-ton crane at Lowestoft Sleeper Depot; 961004, another Grafton 5-ton crane at Lowestoft Sleeper Depot; 961005, a Smith's 5-ton crane and bucket grab at Lowestoft Harbour Works; and 961010, a Grafton 10-ton travelling crane stationed at Wensum Depot, Norwich Thorpe, with its pair of match trucks.

These are diagrams, not full general-arrangement drawings.  That means that they show a broad outline drawing of the side view of each crane, to scale and with important dimensions marked on - the thumbnail picture illustrates this.  They show the jib raised and lowered.  The first and last of the drawings list the lifting capabilities of that crane.  The last drawing has a narrow horizontal blank strip across the middle, perhaps where the original has been folded, but no vital detail is obscured.

Only the last one is marked with a date, 16 March 1942.  The other four must be after 1938, when the LNER renumbered its cranes in that series, so are probably from the 1940s as well.

The file will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
