Further to the recent Bruce Lowe photo - Collection of the GHRA showing CN 50008 Bucyrus Erie 250 ton steam powered wrecking crane, serial number 36210, built in 1946, here is a glimpse of the same crane 37 years later at 56 years old in Kamloops, BC on August 1, 2002. In this photo the crane is now dieselized, has all new sheet metal wrapping the upper structure rotating deck, and is in the newest CN wrecking crane paint scheme.

  1. Nice to know its still around, and a great comparison. CTG notes it as the spare hook at Winnipeg’s Symington Yard. It appears it’s still friction bearing.
