Here is a breakdown crane capable of lifting anything up to 35 tons. Two powerful machines such as this could lift a locomotive back on to the line after a derailment. Every railway company posesses a considerable number of such cranes, distributed at various points, so that in the unfortunate event of a collision involving derailment a breakdown train with cranes and first aid appliances can be on the spot in the minumum of time. The truck carries the weight of the "jib" [giek] when lowered.
