Among my other odd acquisitions from past years is a Roco crane with flatcar, sold as a ConCor and manufactured in Austria. Mine even has a correct paint scheme for ATSF in my year (1969)--but as far as I can tell, the Santa Fe never used anything like it. It also comes in a black ATSF scheme, a UP scheme, a PRR scheme, and several others. People are selling them on ebay, and other people are snapping them up. What in the heck are they? For instance--perhaps they are UP cranes, or perhaps Roco even got them from some Austrian prototype. (Or just made them up over a beer?) Perhaps I am overly concerned with details, but I would feel very odd having this strange crane on my ATSF layout.
Does anyone else here have one of these, and has anyone figured out the story on them?
