FOR SALE to all German model rail fanatics - an ORIGINAL, RARE DDR/GDR/East German overhead crane on rails in fabulous, unused condition and full working order. In bright orange, this metal item is suitable for H0 or TT scale. It is over 20 years old so there are small flakes of paint off the ladder cages but this actually gives it a good worn look! The pictures don't give the best impressions, this crane is a superb item for the finishing touch to any German/European layout.

It consists of the following:

One metal crane on wheels with jib and block, and hand-winding mechanism. The jib moves transversely along the guide.

6 lengths of single rail track to make two 3-piece rails for the crane to move on.

3 small plastic stops for the end of the tracks. There is one missing but to be perfectly honest, they are so generic and basic, any modeller could make another, or a set of more genuine-looking stops.

All packaging and original box included. See pictures for the VEB labelling and sticker on the rails packet. This item goes for more than £75 on the market, even without the rails, so bid now for a real bargain!!
