Name that crane

A reader has come across a photo of an old crawler crane that he is unable to identify.

The crane looks as though it was used in a railway siding and possibly in the USA, but so far we are struggling to identify it here in the office, BUT have not yet given up.
Can you identify this crane?

Perhaps someone out there will know and beat us to it?

Have an enjoyable and safe weekend.


I have Denis Ashworth's book GOING UP IN THE WORLD. I'll look through it to see if this might be in there.

That is a lovely little crane.. hope that it's still out there somewhere.. would make a fantastic restoration project. It actually has a bit of style to it !

I think it's a Northwest, built in Milwuakee, Wisconsin,USA. I don't know what model it is but would guess it was built in the late 50's or early 60's. That's all I have.
