MAMMOET 1513 (500T)

  • Romet
This crane can lift the equivalent of three SD40s at the same time. What a monster!

The Liebherr line also has a model capable of lifting 1,200T. Not the most unusual load though as we get lots of cranes on CN though here, most are somewhat smaller though (can only lift one SD40 at a time...)
I've hear of oversize loads over the road before. But oversize loads over the rails? Holy mother. That is one hell of a load.
I don't know if it's optical illusion, but that flat car looks like it's sagging. I've got an HO Liebherr crane, but it has a whopping winder knob on the side, never seem to show than in the ads on ebay.
