Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends is an ensemble of lovable railroad characters that includes Cranky the Crane. Cranky is one of the add-ons to the award-winning Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway System. Straight out of the books by W. Awdry that made Thomas famous, Cranky has a fascinating history and a captivating personality. This crane comes with experience, a slightly testy temperament, and two large red handles for easy operation. Cranky's body attaches lickety-split to the crane tower. One handle pivots Cranky around; the other raises and lowers cargo for loading and unloading cars by magnetic power. Cranky the Crane comes with one piece of cargo, also durably built of wood.
