Locomotora Grúa / Locomotive Crane

….It was an ex-US Navy crane from Roosevelt Roads.  It was built by Ohio Crane, serial number 4264, 3/29/43.  It was meter gauge, and is a locomotive crane (self propelled), 30 tons, 75′ boom with a 5′ extension, diesel-electric.  It may have gone first to the American RR, per information from a veteran who was stationed at the base where the crane worked the docks and drydock.  But I have no proof of that.  According to workers at Plata, they got it in 1958.  I took the photo of it in early 1969.   Deyo, Dave. “Central La Plata.” Message to the author. 14 Sept. 2014.
