Hi Jack,

American Hoist and Derrick is still in business in St. Paul,

Speaking of M of W equipment, the Yosemite Valley Railroad owned a steam
crane described as:

An American Hoist and Derrick 18-ton locomotive steam crane, combination
shovel and pile driver, boom 27', shovel capacity 1 yard.

Before I start working up drawings based entirely on photos in order to
scratchbuild this piece of equipment, does anyone have plans for such a
crane or know where I might obtain them?
