NYC Crane, "GCT-1"

Built in 1914 by Industrial Crane Works of Michigan, it is 90 feet long and is capable of moving 100 tons. It moved using third-rail power, but crane operation was powered by several large batteries on the roof. The short, stocky booms of the double ended crane show the designer's intentiions for tunnel use. Of the three cranes like this ever built, this is the only one that survived the scrapper's torch.
