Both the PRR and B&O will have portals which will spit out trains every now and then, just as some kinetic backdrop.

Sissons Stone Yard and spur, next to the B&O Belt line on the east side of the valley
I only know where it was, not what it looked like, so this is a TOTAL guess....

Bird's eye view of the valley, PRR GG1 and coaches in the foreground on PRR tracks, opposite back is the PRR interchange track with the M&pa; B&O curves at top left toward it's tunnel below 26th Street

    I have an extensive library of books dealing with the B&O. I'll see what I can dig up about the stone yard. Don't know about the pedestal crane however, as they were mainly found in seaports and heavy industries. I assume that the stone yard was in Baltimore itself?
