Other Cranes


A crane is used for lifting heaving objects and loading and unloading cargo from vessels. Many of these have been seen around Bigg City Port, which appear to be small dockyard cranes.

In the episode Trapped, Sunshine mentioned a floating crane that resided in "Top-Town", but was scrapped according to Billy Shoepack.

It is likely that some of the crane models were sold to Brit Allcroft, the creator of the Thomas & Friends television series, after Tugs' production ended, as similar models have been used on-set in Thomas & Friends.
