Hamburg Semi-Portal Cranes

Hello Friends,

I have researched as much as I can in regards to the Semi-Portal Cranes used in Hamburg and as depicted in HMV's Hafen Diorama. I have found many pictures of the exterior but none of the cab or machinery house.

As I think the cranes are one of the most fascinating aspects of the diorama, I would like to show one of the crane cabs with the door open. Does anyone have any ideas as to the interior arrangement? Obviously, the view will be quite small so I am really looking for just a general idea. For instance, directly behind the operators position is there a bulkhead or would the electrical equipment for the hoist be visible?

Many Thanks in advance,

Cris

RE: Hamburg Semi-Portal Cranes

Hello Chris,
try to mail:
gs@museum-der-arbeit-hafenmuseum.de

This musuem ist the upcoming harbour museum in Hamburg. Located Australien Kai Building 52.
As far as I know the should own an lot of pictures concerning the harbour and the harbour work. Or try the archives of HHLA. This is the Hamburg Hafen Logistics Agency( I don't know if this is the correct name but HHLA will do.

Best regards
Ulrich

Dear Cris,

attached is a photo of a comparable crane in „not so good“ condition.
These photos are taken near by the Hafen Museum in Hamburg.

You can see the Control panel with the levers, a bulkhead in the Back with a door to the Engine Room.
The electric winch is located in the aft of the house. Hard to see from outside.

I hope these pictures will help, despite of the condition of the crane.

Best regards Till

Hello Grautvornix,

Thank you so much for taking the time to upload these. They answer a lot of questions! These pictures were just what I was looking for.

The "not so good condition" is my normal modeling mode so again, perfect ;)

Thank you again.

Gratefully Yours,

Cris
