Unlike the crane itself, which was a precision piece of gear made by a specialized company, the crane tender was usually a home-built affair, cobbled together from whatever a railroad's shop crew had lying around. Our model represents a typical such car, built from an older flatcar and part of an obsolete or wreck-damaged outside-braced wooden box car, now functioning as an equipment shed.
