I would love to see a couple of pictures of the crane builders plates. They sound bigger than locomotive builders plates. Are there many people who collect them ? From time to time crane builders plates appear on Ebay or at some of the auctions where there are locomotive builders plates and they don't realize high dollars surprizingly. A short while ago I was looking at a crane builders plate on Ebay, built by Lima. Who are the main crane builders out there ? I guess Lima would be one, I have heard of a company called Marion but I am not sure they build cranes or mining shovels. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any pictures. all the best, richard
Richard: You asked about crane companies so here we go. Bucyrus (started in Bucyrus, Ohio). Marion of Marion, Ohio. Erie of Buffalo?, Lima of Lima, Ohio, Industrial Brownhoist of Cleveland,Ohio. Browning of Cleveland, Ohio, McMyler Interstate of Bedford, Ohio, Ohio Locomotive Crane, Bucyrus, Ohio, Wellman Engineering of Cleveland, Ohio, Orton of Huntington, IN, Bay City of Bay City Michigan, Industrial of Bay City Michigan, Link Belt, P&H, American, Burro, Osgood of Marion, Ohio. There are more I have missed.
