Info about the build
I created the Grande Prairie Alberta Canfor Logyard Crane as a tribute to
the original Crane from my city.
The original crane was torn down Around Apr 20, 2012.
This crain was created on Xbox 360 and brought it to PC.

I tried to keep it looking the same.  Anyways.  Enjoy.


History about the crane
Built in 1985, the giant crane at the Grande Prairie Sawmill has
been a prominent feature of the Grande Prairie skyline for
decades. When built 27 years ago, the crane was given a 20 year
service live expectancy. In order to keep the crane operational,
significant investments in structural and electrical improvements
would be required. Given the mill’s move to cut to length log
sizes and the improved efficiencies with ground based equipment
moving smaller log sizes, the decision was made to invest in log
yard improvements and retire the crane. A significant safety
hazard without the identified upgrades, the crane unfortunately
must be dismantled. Canfor and the Grande Prairie community are
marking the end of an era at our mill site with the loss of this
prominent landmark.
