I thought you model train guys might enjoy seeing this.
These were expensive. They had a lot overhead.

They must have had a Loco Motive for doing that.

Looks like the Locomotive from "Back to the Future" that could fly?

It would seem they were proud of their cranes:

It also looks like the facility is still in use:

There is a locomotive shop of this vintage still standing in Philadelphia. It is now used for other purposes. I was in it about six years ago and was certain I took photos, but they might have been on a camera that crashed about that time. It still had a crane set-up like this and I was told it was capable of lifting locomotives.

The 2010 film "unstoppable" with Denzel Washington used the Brewster, Ohio yards and surrounding country side as some of their shooting locations.

Would you risk your life standing under a locomotive?
