The solution where space is at a premium

I am just about finished with the modifications to the Gottwald Crane. It has been a fun job, but the handrails proved very fragile in handling during the construction. The die cast parts are quite heavy compared to the styrene, so any slip and they crunch the delicate plastic parts.  I'll add a few details and move on.

See this video for more information about this type of crane.
