Re: Monon Bucyrus crane
The derrick is likely SWD 1. The following is
information I have from a MOW dept. report written
June 8, 1946:
Car No.: SWD #1
Kind: Wrecking Derrick.
Trucks: 7 x 12 [journals]
CI&L acquired: new 1912.
-Capacity 100 tons.
-8 wheel trucks [?]
-Equipped with electric lights furnished by Pyle
-Manufactured by Bucyrus Co., Milwaukee Wis.
It was first numbered X-1. Renumbered to SWD 1 prior
to mid 30's. Renumbered to 80001 mid 50's. I'm
relatively sure it lasted until the end (1971). I
have the diagram for it as well if you want it. The
diagram lists the serial number as #1452. I think this
derrick was stationed at Shops and the other (150 ton)
derrick was at Bloomington. Mont?!?!?
