      Hi Randy,

      The crane is from a small company located here in Switzerland called
      MZZ. They produce all sorts of metal casts for Z-scale and other
      scales.
      I noticed that 'td25scorpio' posted a message on Sat Oct 27 with a
      link to page where some of their models are shown.
