Robin Madge made some remarks about this model:
“This model represents a 45 ton Ransomes and Rapier breakdown crane with its two load spreading trucks and jib cradle vehicle. These were built during WW2 to supplement the existing fleet of cranes on the railway system. They were originally painted grey, became black under BR and then Red. The version modelled is the GWR one, correctly coloured grey, all other GWR cranes were black.
