John,
If you are interested in Burro cranes; I think the Seashore Trolley Museum still has one in their track department.

Their roster only says is is the former Chesapeake & Ohio BC-27. It is now powered by a 6 cylinder Hercules Diesel. Do not know the model number.

Several years ago, they sent it down to Boston to help take down an elevated railroad.

Hope that helps you list.

I don't know anything more about the Seashore Burro than what they have posted. I did write them and ask but never heard back.
