Re: BIG crane job!

Something different though, even without tree work. Its not every day that you get that close to a train crash. (not sure i would WANT to, but interesting nonetheless.)

The two green coloured cranes pictured are Leibherr (spelling?) 500 tonners.
The two rail cranes pictured are 75 tonners..

There is a 1200t crawler crane coming in to lift the engine!
