    Hello

    I want to include the Snyder Diesel Fuel Crane from American Limited Models in my Engine Service Facility.
    Does anybody know which year they appeared the first time?

    PS: My layout will be set between early 1970s to mid 1990s.

    If you had a pic, or a link to a pic, that could help.
    If not, I'm guessing fuel cranes probably were started to being used in the early 1950's, when diesel service facilities were being built, and steam was being outmoded.
    But, thats just a guess.
