    Chessie System Command Control Crane Car and Boom Car? They look really cool. I assume there is no motor to move them on the track so they have to be coupled up to move..correct? All the motors are for the hooks and boom I believe.....

    Speaking of radio controlled cranes, check this one out. It is a one of a kind, built by a gentleman named Jim Hadden. It is self propelled, and all the functions work. And not to be outdone, it is run on live steam...


    Here's Jim giving a demo...

    MCF: I saw those cars in the LHS this week. Looked nice. You're right about their needing a loco to pull them. Same as the real thing.
    I think the boom car has sounds - workmen hitting their thumbs, dinner frying.

    The track is G-gauge, (45 mm). I think the scale is somewhere around 1:20.3. That would be true if he is modeling American narrow gauge, (3 ft.).
