The Crocks Scrapyard Crane
The crane was painted brown.
These cranes were painted brown and red.
- It is unknown what the letters "A.J.R." stand for.
The "Grabber" is the nickname for a crane with large retracting claws used for dismantling, smelting and scrapping machinery based at the Sodor Ironworks.
Once, 'Arry and Bert wrongfully shunted Stepney underneath the giant grabber, with the intention of scrapping him. Thankfully, the Fat Controller arrived in the nick of time and shut the grabber down.
- In the fifth season episode, Stepney Gets Lost, the narrator implies that the "Grabber" is sentient.

Happy Hook is a stationary non-sentient crane based at the Vicarstown Dieselworks.
Happy Hook was old and had not been repaired for a long time; as a result, Dart complained about the crane frequently. Kevin was then brought to the Dieselworks to do the jobs that Happy Hook could not, and enjoyed playing with it. When the Dieselworks was rebuilt, Happy Hook was restored.
When Diesel wanted to compete in The Great Railway Show, Happy Hook assisted in his plan to be chosen by putting crates on top of Den, Dart and Paxton. It later dropped a crate on Diesel after Dart was bashed into it.
Happy Hook later carried Daisy when Diesel bumped into her so that the engineers and workmen could find out what was wrong with her.
Happy Hook's cab is painted orange, while its tower and crane arm are painted grey.
