This is the Overhead Gantry Crane Kit Model Railroad Building in N Scale by Monroe Models.
Every railroad needs an overhead crane to lift heavy objects from railcars to trucks for delivery to its final destination. They are used for lifting quarry stones, pre cast concrete parts, steel coils, steel rails, large crates or anything that wouldn't roll off a flatcar or gondola. This gantry crane model is created from an actual prototype erected in the 30's and still stands to this day.
